Prince Harry to race to South Pole

London, April 20, 2013 (IANS)

Prince Harry will take part in a race to the South Pole as member of a team of wounded British servicemen and women, a media report said.

The 28-year-old prince will take on teams from the US and the Commonwealth in the 335-km "Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge" in November-December, Sky News reported.

Harry, who took part in the charity's trek to the North Pole in 2011 and is the event's patron, said he will be competing as part of Team Glenfiddich.

He missed out on a bid to conquer Mount Everest with the group last year because of his military commitments.

He also withdrew early from the North Pole expedition to attend his brother's wedding.
Harry will race in Team Glenfiddich with Sergeant Duncan Slater, 34, who lost both his legs in a blast in Afghanistan in 2009; Major Kate Philp, 34, who lost her left leg after a bomb blast in 2008; Captain Guy Disney, 31, who lost his right leg in a rocket attack in 2009; and Captain Ibrar Ali, who lost his right arm in a roadside bomb in 2007.
