Prince Harry Will Race To The South Pole For Charity

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Prince Harry might be facing his biggest one yet (until he has to babysit Kate & Will’s royal sprog). The younger Prince brother will be racing to the south pole in aid of charity.

“As a member of the British team, I will have a brew (tea) on ready for you when you join us at the Pole," he said in a speech, referring to participants from other countries. "Ladies and gentlemen, these men and women have given their all in the cause of freedom, in our cause. That they should once again step into the breach - this time facing down the extreme physical and mental challenges of trekking to the South Pole - just underlines their remarkable qualities." He added:"So, what are these qualities? Courage, to be sure. Physical strength, endurance, a sense of comradeship, absolutely. The Walking With The Wounded charity funds re-training and re-education of wounded servicemen and women to help them find employment after leaving the services. "But there's something else,” adds the Prince, “something deeper than that. Something that continues to draw me back to this charity and these people time and again - and always will. "It's toughness of mind. An unquenchable spirit that simply refuses to say, 'I am beaten'. In a way it's something that can't be defined. You've either got it or you haven't."

During the four-week expedition the racers will drag sledges - known as pulks - weighing more than 150lb (68kg) and face extreme temperatures as low as -45C, along with savage 50mph winds – good luck Hazza!
