Your end of 2021 challenge is to get to the North Pole by Christmas Day – and who knows, if you’re lucky you might even bump into a jolly man in red bearing gifts! The Christmas Virtual Challenge is about journeying on foot to the top of the globe’s icy cap, and arriving before Christmas Day ends. There are 4 route options – from the direct 100 km ‘Norway Route’, to the epic 600 km ‘Greenland Route’. Choose your challenge – take it on anywhere, anytime from Saturday 13th November onwards – log your progress and move along our on our Virtual Map of the Arctic ice – and share your stories online as you head up to the Grotto at 90 degrees North!
There are ‘Prize Draws’ for reaching the halfway point of your route by 12th December, and also for those at the Pole by 25th – Christmas Day! Fund-raise for a charity if you wish to, and there’s a Christmas Challenge medal & neck buff for all. If you have a dog get them involved also, as they’ve been pillars of many successful expeditions – and apparently quite like walking!
