Polar Adventure 2015


Headnorth Polar Adventure

In 2015, Gary Wright, Charlie Birkett and Yves Damette completed a 100km trek from Ice Camp Barneo to the Geographic North Pole, the highest point on Planet Earth. The trek path traverses over 100km of shifting sea ice, ice walls and ice mazes, and is one of the most extreme tests of physical and psychological endurance that humans can experience. The group battled through an unpredictable polar climate pulling sledges weighing 60kg in temperatures of -50ºc. The Y.CO headnorth team was joined by members of the 2003 Rugby World Cup-winning team, Lewis Moody MBE Danny Grewcock MBE and Josh Lewsey MBE, led by accomplished polar explorer Alan Chambers MBE FRGS.

Fundraising. Exploration. Adventure.

Headnorth raised over £180,000. The funds were divided between two charities supporting those with head injuries and brain tumours and members of the military who have suffered in service, the Lewis Moody Foundation and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF).
