New photograph of Alexander Skarsgard from Day 3 of his polar trek with Walking With the Wounded. Good luck to all the teams! I’ll be updating this post with more images in the gallery. Photo source WWTW FB page.
Here’s the link to the interactive map showing the teams and their progress. (looks like Team Noom/USA is first right now) MAP
Here is the Day 4 update of how far they have walked:

Here’s an update from Ed Parker after Day 3:
Ed Parker, Team Noom Coach, updates the voice diary on day three and talks about how the teams are progressing in the race and how they manage to stay warm over night in Antarctic temperatures.
“Good evening, it’s Ed Parker from Team Noom Coach, end of Day 3. The US Team has done just about exactly the same distance as yesterday: 21.7 miles. We find ourselves camping this evening right next to the Commonwealth team, who’ve had a good day. They started 3 kilometers behind us and have managed to catch up during the day. But very nice to see them this evening. The Brits are still up front and going well. The weather’s still very very nice but the, the terrain is really really hard. Sastrugi all day long, which just takes it out of your legs a bit, and a real challenge for Ivan. But we’re getting there. We’re all pretty knackered. It’s been a long day but we’re now putting up our tents. The extraordinary thing about the tents here is because of the sun the radiation and the 24 hour daylight. The inside of the tents are really lovely and warm, and so actually at night these extraordinary sleeping bags we’ve got are rather over the top. It can get a little hot, rather in contrast to the rest of the day when we’re out skiing. But all is going well. We hope people are following what we’re up to and we are very much looking forward to reaching our goal in I hope 10 or 11 days. Many thanks. Bye.”
