In December 2008, three world-class adventurers will trek 680 miles (1094 kilometers), from Hercules Inlet to South Pole, self-supported, to the South Pole in a goal of under 40 days.

This is another attempt to break Hannah McKeand's 38 days record. The team includes : ultra-runner Ray Zahab, legendary arctic explorer Richard Weber, and elite adventurer Kevin Vallely.

The runners will collect data for the ongoing research projects that will provide material for the researchers, as well as the i2P team- and will be utilized in the educational modules.

The team will use solar technology and the latest communications technology to communicate all over the world.
