Early in July last year I headed up to John O’Groats, the anticipated start of the Scott Centenary Sledge Pull. The plan was for a nation wide relay, with trains of youth powered sledges making their way the length of the country and we were tasked with reccying the route. Sadly, circumstances meant the original sledge pull could not go ahead, but fortunately, many schools and organisations have taken up the challenge, to remember Captain Scott and raise money or some excellent charities. You find out more about it (or get involved) here.
