Alok Jha talks to legendary explorer Felicity Aston about what endurance means to her.

In 2012, Felicity became the first woman to ski solo across the Antarctic landmass, a journey of over 1000 miles that took her 59 days and earned her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Felicity has gone on to organise and lead numerous expeditions to remote places around the world, but particularly to the Polar Regions. Her expeditions have included the first British Women’s crossing of Greenland, a 6000km drive to the South Pole and leading international teams of women on ski expeditions to both the North and South Poles.

She has been appointed MBE for services to polar exploration and awarded the Polar Medal for services to the Arctic and Antarctic.
