Last night LMAX Exchange hosted a press event to officially unveil and launch the Wooden Spoon, the Children’s Charity of Rugby, Arctic Rugby Challenge.
The Arctic Rugby Challenge will see two teams , set out from Resolute Bay, Canada in the middle of April 2015 to trek up to 100 miles to the furthest place north on the planet, the certified Magnetic North Pole. This pioneering expedition, expected to take 7 days to complete, will be led by world class maritime, polar adventurer, Jock Wishart who will be accompanied by intrepid adventures including former Rugby Internationals Tim Stimpson (England) and Pat Sanderson (England and British Lions) as well as our very own David Mercer.
The Arctic conditions will see them learn how to survive in harrowing winds, avoid and scare away polar bears and temperatures as low as –50C with wind chill. Once the teams arrive at their final destination, and in celebration of the Rugby World Cup, they will attempt to set a world record and play the northernmost rugby match in history.
This challenge is a once in a lifetime experience with the opportunity to set a unique World Record and the first of its kind for Wooden Spoon and is estimated to raise over £300,000 for the charity.
