The first trail run challenge is open to everyone that applies, you will then be reviewed by a panel of expert adventurers. The panel review will be looking at a series of important traits about each individual and to see that they have what it takes to overcome the challenges and hardship that will be endured on the Antarctic Expedition. The challenges will continue for more information find out here on the challenges page.
Our final 30 applicants will then undergo rigorous training intended to push each and every individual outside of their comfort zone and to see how you perform. From learning how to skate on ice, to camping & survival in the wilderness through to international expeditions to some of the most incredible landscapes on our Blue Planet.
10 people will remain by the end, with an additional 2 guarantors in case any individual of the final 10 may drop out. This will be the team that heads off on the final journey to Chile and on to Antarctica – to achieve history for Thailand in January 2019 !
