The Dark Ice Project

Latest news from our intrepid explorer friend Justin Miles

Justin Miles is undertaking the Dark Ice Project to cover 2800 miles across the ArcticJustin is very close to jetting off to the North Pole to begin his Arctic winter expedition – The Dark Ice Project, which will take him a total of 2800 miles across the polar ice, in the dark.

Apparently his training regime now includes resistance work to develop all around strength. Although you’d probably expect someone to have to increase their fitness levels for such a gruelling expedition, you might shudder when we tell you that Justin is doing it so he can haul a daunting 400kg load across the ice!

Acorn can vouch for Justin’s great relationship with the media and his ability to get coverage for his sponsors and supporters. He’s asked us to flag up some of the marketing opportunities he has to sponsor some important items of project equipment including:

  • Satellite Telephone
  • McMurdo Fastfind emergency beacon
  • Sleep System
  • Down Jacket

Padded Extreme Fleece ready to embroider

Justin can combine the sponsorship with other promotional activities such as motivational talks, event appearances or branding projects.Find out more on the “Just for the Challenge” website. All we can say is “Go Justin”.
