Safe and sound

They only slept a few hours in 7 days. They trekked, mountain biked (at one point 13.5hrs non stop), the kayaked in freezing seas, trudged over mountains thigh-deep in snow. They swam across a freezing river, towing their kit. They worked well together, bit the bullet, dug deep.

They are the first team in history to win two editions of the Patagonian Expedition Adventure Race two years in a row.

They are now sleeping and eating, safe and sound, at the end of the world in Chilean Patagonia, swapping stories of their heroics with the other teams who trailed in their wake.

I am so proud.
