Story

Arctic Rugby Challenge - Paul Jordan has come together with Children's rugby charity Wooden Spoon and world class maritime and polar adventurer, Jock Wishart on a pioneering expedition to the Magnetic North Pole. The intrepid adventurers include former rugby union internationals Tim Stimpson (England & British & Irish Lions) and Ollie Phillips (England 7s & Gloucester). The match ref will be England and British & Irish Lion legend Lee Mears.

I will be joining Jock, Tim and Ollie as an expedition challenger, embarking on this world record breaking trek to the Magnetic North Pole (MNP) in April/May 2015. We will set out from Resolute Bay, Canada and ski/trek the final 100 miles in Arctic conditions over frozen sea and land to reach the MNP before playing the northernmost rugby match in history. Setting a World Record in the process.

For me this will be quite a challenge in its own right having survived a major stroke in 2010. It was something I really wanted to do and raise money for a very worthy cause at the same time.

We will learn how to survive harrowing winds, avoid and scare away polar bears, physical & mental fatigue and temperatures as low as -50C with wind chill

You can follow my progress on Twitter @arcticjordy Facebook, www.arcticrugbychallenge.org and www.woodenspoon.com

Each participant’s aim is to raise £50,000 and engage local schools and communities in raising awareness and much needed support for Wooden Spoon.

I am securing corporate sponsorship to cover my expdedition cost so all donations from this page will go directly to Wooden Spoon.
