The Virgin Money South Pole Allied Challenge 2013, of which Harry is patron, will see the participants race across three degrees to the South Pole. All 12 injured service personnel from Britain, America, Canada and Australia have overcome life-changing injuries and undertaken challenging training programmes to prepare themselves for the conditions they will face in Antarctica. Trekking around 15km to 20km per day, the teams will endure temperatures as low as minus 45C and 50mph winds as they pull their 70kg sleds to the south pole. (Photo by WWTW via Getty Images)
