Ben and Tarka are heading to Chamonix this week to compete in the Vertical KM race as part of training for the Scott Expedition.
In October 2013, British adventurers Ben Saunders and Tarka L’Herpiniere will set out on an expedition to Antarctica to complete Scott’s 1,800-mile return journey to the South Pole on foot.
It will be the longest unsupported journey in polar history and first time Scott's journey is completed.
