4th trek day…Reaching The Pole!

They Did It!  A buoyant Arctic Rugby Challenge team recorded their latest update from the Magnetic North Pole, after arriving yesterday evening (Tuesday 28th April, early morning UK time).

We are delighted and proud our epic explorers have accomplished the trek. We are all waiting with anticipation to get the green light to fly out to meet them, in order to stage the most northerly game of rugby ever played! An amazing achievement, all to raise vital funds for Wooden Spoon.
