    Yes it was the Polar challenge, towing the sleds, they finished 2nd (all dressed as Elvis, as they reckoned the North Pole was the only place Elvis had not been sighted at) They raised over 32,000 for Great Ormond St Childrens Hospital

    Robin Knox Johnston and Randy Fiennes were on the box the other night showing how they trained and that involved this very method. starting with 2-3 tyres! and building up to 5 pulling them up and over rubble etc.

    They were wearing walshes on their feet.
