Alastair Humphreys

In the last 100 years, twelve people have stood on the moon, more than 500 have been into space, and more than five thousand have climbed Everest. Yet the journey Captain Scott and his team died trying to complete a century ago remains unrealised. No one has ever walked from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back again.

In 2012, the year of the London Olympics and the Queen’s 60th Jubilee, Ben Saunders, Alastair Humphreys and Martin Hartley take on arguably the most ambitious polar expedition in the last century: the four-month Scott 2012 – the first return journey to the South Pole on foot, and at 1,800 miles, the longest unsupported polar journey in history.
The Scott 2012 Expedition will complete Captain Scott's ill-fated journey to the South Pole 100 years ago.
The team recently returned from a training expedition in Greenland.

    Three and half years ago I packed my car and headed north. Little did I know, I would find home.

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
