Three British Army medics are going to take one of the US Army's toughest tests
On 13 March 2017 the British Army Trans Americas Expedition team will take on the Pan-American Highway when it leaves Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America on a 20,000 mile journey to Prudhoe Bay on the northern coast of Alaska.
The distance to be covered is more than three quarters the circumference of the world and will involve travelling through 15 countries and include crossing the infamous Darien Gap.
For the last year the team has applied its leadership and military skills to plan and prepare for the expedition.
