Hi! We’re Team Polar Endeavour, from Nottingham, United Kingdom, who are working together to form a team to put forward the Youngest Solo Unsupported Unassisted Coast to South Pole Crossing on foot, the expedition is expected to set off in November 2019.

Team Polar Endeavour’s aim is to facilitate the Youngest Solo Unsupported Unassisted Coast to South Pole Crossing on foot with team member Tom Warburton attempting this expedition. He intends to walk/ski from Hercules Inlet on the northwestern coast of Antarctic to the geographic South Pole, a distance over 685 miles or 1100 km. During this expedition he will gain over 3000 metres, as he travels in nearly -60 c degrees temperatures, braving harsh winds, referred to as katabatics, his expedition should take over 45 days, arriving in the South Pole, just in time to see in the new year!
