#057 The Antarctic Fire Angels - Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary things
Jan 19, 2021 Season 1 Episode 57
Pete Wakefield

This team of inspiring firefighters are training to ski coast-to-coast across Antarctica in November 2023. 

Together they will cover 1,900 Km, pulling 85 Kg pulks (supply sleds) in temperatures as low as -50 and in wind speeds of over 60 mph in approximately 70 days. That’s around 27 Km every day.

Conquering this route using mind and muscle power alone will be a World Record, as the team would be the first all-female emergency services team to achieve this.

To make this incredible expedition happen, they need to raise £500,000 to support us with training, equipment, nutrition, technology, and specialist technical support.

it was such a pleasure to have Bex and George on the show.
