Episode 3. The North Pole Reunion

Overcoming. A Walking With The Wounded Podcast

Release Date: 05/28/2021

On 16th April 2011, our team, including 4 wounded soldiers, successfully arrived at the North Pole after a 13-day trek across 190 miles of the polar ice cap. 

They covered the greatest distance of any polar expedition that season, man-hauling their sleds, containing all of their equipment and supplies, over 200 miles. They were completely unsupported in the most hostile environment on Earth, dealing with polar bears, open water leads, and temperatures of -60°C. 

Andy from WWTW talks to members of the team to find out why WWTW headed out to the North Pole, why they signed up, and the Expedition impact 10 years ago.
