The Adventurers: Peter van Kets and Braam Malherbe
The Adventure: Completing the South Pole Challenge
The South Pole Challenge is considered to be the toughest race on the planet. Celebrating the centenary of the race between Scott and Amundsen, six teams set off to cover 768km by ski, unsupported, with the finish line at the South Pole. After 24 days of the planet's most extreme weather, Braam Malherbe and Peter van Kets arrived at the South Pole in third position, with Team British Green/Centrepoint. In the true spirit of adventure, they spent the last week of the race carrying gear from the other team after Andrew Carnie fractured his arm. Both South Africans agreed that this race was the toughest adventure event they had completed, and we are in awe of their sportsmanship.
