Arctic trekkers head to Sweden for cold water training

Twelve volunteers raising money for Isle Listen

Twelve hardy volunteers are heading for Northern Sweden today to take part in cold weather training, ahead of a charity trek to the Arctic Circle in March.

Expedition Limitless has been coordinated by human performance specialists Omnia Mind, and it's hoped the twelve trekkers will raise around £50,000 for local mental health charity, Isle Listen.

One of the trekkers is Shannon Groves. She admits the 110 kilometre trek in one of the world's least hospitable locations, is daunting, but she's looking forward to the challenge.
