The world`s longest solo ski expedition - Rune Gjeldnes from Norway broke the world record!

On Tuesday 03.01.2006 Rune Gjeldnes broke another Norwegian Børge Ousland's solo ski record from 1997. So far on Rune`s expedition The Longest March, he has been skiing solo 62 days and 2845 kilometres. On Rune`s record day, he kept on for several hours more, and made a total distance of 140 kilometres this day, but this is not the end of the walk. Rune is aiming for more. In few days he hopes to break another record held by some other Norwegians....

This is the latest report from Rune (source: his website: Extreme Planet - Seal). Here you can hear his voice reports too.

The next record is 821 kilometres further North, at 3800 kilometres. The longest ski expedition in distance is held by the Norwegian explorers Sønneland and Bae.

If Rune is able to keep his current daily distances the world record is only 5 to 6 days ahead.
Stein Morten Lund, 4 January 2006

Additional information
Ousland skied 2845 kilometres across Antarctica alone and unsupported in 1996 - 97. At the time, the longest ski expedition in distance was covered.

The current record is held by Eirik Sønneland and Rolf Bae, who skied 3800 kilometres across Antarctica in 2000 - 2001. One of Runes goals is to break this record during his expedition! Now his is as mentioned above just few days ahead.

On his expedition, the Longest March, Rune reached the Geographical South Pole the 20th December 2005 at 12.46 GMT. At this time Rune covered 2200 kilometres alone and without re supplies during his 45 days in Antarctica. This is his first expedition to the South Pole.
