South Pole Expedition

Eirliani and Ruta who are based in Delhi will be setting off for the South Pole in December 2018 by way of Reedy Glacier on the Ross Ice Shelf which has not been done before. Over two months, they will be dragging a 100kg (220 lbs) sled each in polar conditions (-30 deg C) over 1100km (683 miles). If successful, both explorers will be the first women to trek to the South Pole from their countries.

OUR TRAINING PROGRAMME

The benefits of a systematic and escalating training regime affects the performance of the team. We will have to escalate our training at least three months prior to departure with one of the most effective training in ʻ‘tyre draggingʼ’. It looks a bit strange, but it works. With 3 old tyres tied with four metres of rope and a carabiner, sled harness with padded shoulder straps and a waist belt. The ski poles assists with momentum, power and balance and ought to help develop our technique. We will have to accustom a stride of our fitting. Whilst planting the pole next to each of our foot and use it to push forward into the next stride.
