-Television presenter, Lowri Morgan,

-is facing another massive challenge.

0:00:030:00:09

-Following her success

-in the 2009 Jungle Marathon...

0:00:110:00:14

-..she'll replace

-the humidity of the Amazon...

0:00:150:00:18

-..with the freezing extremities

-of the Arctic.

0:00:180:00:21

-Lowri will travel to the Yukon, the

-westernmost territory of Canada...

0:00:490:00:54

-..to compete

-in the 6633 Ultra race.

0:00:550:00:58

-6633 signifies the latitude

-of the Arctic Circle.

0:00:590:01:05

-It's the only race that takes

-competitors across that line.

0:01:050:01:09

-It's a non-stop, 350-mile race

-over eight days...

0:01:090:01:14

-..and the competitors

-must be self-sufficient.

0:01:140:01:17

-The race has only

-been completed seven times.

0:01:180:01:22

-Temperatures can drop

-to -93 degrees Celsius...

0:01:230:01:27

-..with strong 70mph winds.

0:01:270:01:31

-Only those with mental

-and physical strength...

0:01:320:01:34

-..who have prepared thoroughly

-will succeed.

0:01:350:01:38

-This is the windiest, coldest and

-most extreme marathon in the world.

0:01:380:01:43

-It's eight months until the race.

-Training has become a way of life.

0:01:470:01:52

-My life currently

-resembles Groundhog Day!

0:01:550:01:57

-I get up in the morning

-and go running.

0:01:580:02:00

-I go to work, go home

-and go running again.

0:02:000:02:04

-I eat a lot and go to bed.

0:02:040:02:06

-I get up in the morning

-and go running.

0:02:060:02:09

-I go to work, then run,

-eat, eat a lot and go to bed.

0:02:100:02:14

-Even at weekends,

-I get up and go running.

0:02:140:02:18

-I have lunch and go running.

0:02:180:02:21

-My life is so rock 'n' roll!

0:02:210:02:24

-She's currently running

-110 miles a week...

0:02:270:02:31

-..but this race requires

-more than just fitness.

0:02:310:02:34

-All the equipment has arrived,

-including this huge coat.

0:02:360:02:41

-Look at all this stuff.

0:02:410:02:43

-First, this is the pulk -

-or the sledge.

0:02:430:02:46

-I'll be pulling about

-20 kilos a day on that.

0:02:460:02:52

-Then, there's the dry food.

0:02:520:02:55

-I'll need 5,000 calories per day

-to maintain my energy levels.

0:02:550:03:01

-I've got walking sticks to help me

-when times get tough.

0:03:010:03:05

-I've also created

-my own cooking system.

0:03:050:03:07

-These are the things I like...

0:03:080:03:10

-..the spikes that go on the base

-of my running shoes.

0:03:100:03:14

-Then, I've got water flasks

-which I've covered in Sellotape...

0:03:140:03:19

-..to stop my fingers

-from sticking to the metal.

0:03:190:03:22

-There's a rucksack

-with a pouch on the front.

0:03:220:03:25

-I'll need to learn about

-the various pockets.

0:03:250:03:28

-Then, clothing

-and sleeping equipment.

0:03:280:03:31

-The sleeping bag can be used

-in -60 degrees Celsius.

0:03:310:03:34

-The bivvy protects you from

-the strong winds and cold weather.

0:03:350:03:39

-Another mattress underneath.

0:03:400:03:42

-I've also got a bothy bag which is

-a tent that's used in an emergency.

0:03:420:03:48

-I'll go in here, sit down...

0:03:480:03:51

-..and pull it closed.

0:03:510:03:54

-Hopefully, this will protect me...

0:03:550:03:58

-..and enable me to rejuvenate myself

-for the next section of the race.

0:03:580:04:03

-That's all of the equipment.

0:04:050:04:08

-I've got a few months to learn

-how to use all these kit items...

0:04:080:04:13

-..whilst wearing

-these massive gloves.

0:04:130:04:16

-I have to respect

-every single piece of equipment...

0:04:160:04:20

-..because these will save my life

-when I'm out in the Arctic.

0:04:200:04:24

-I've just run 40 miles...

-40 miles, yeah!

0:04:330:04:36

-I've never done that before.

0:04:360:04:38

-People ask why I put myself

-through all of this pain.

0:04:430:04:47

-It's all about

-my current feeling of euphoria.

0:04:480:04:54

-I've done something that I didn't

-think was possible this morning.

0:04:540:04:59

-Despite the joy

-of reaching another milestone...

0:05:020:05:06

-..Lowri's anxious about the serious

-dangers she'll face in the Arctic.

0:05:060:05:11

-She must learn to survive

-in extreme weather conditions.

0:05:110:05:16

-After all, the Arctic

-has claimed many lives.

0:05:160:05:20

-Lowri survived the

-sweltering heat of the Amazon...

0:05:210:05:24

-..but competing in the freezing

-Arctic is totally different...

0:05:240:05:28

-..and far more dangerous.

0:05:280:05:31

-She seeks advice from Eurwyn Davies,

-former royal marine and paramedic...

0:05:320:05:37

-..who cared for her in the jungle.

0:05:380:05:42

-Seven months before the race...

0:05:430:05:45

-..Eurwyn teaches her

-some survival skills for the Arctic.

0:05:450:05:49

-At an industrial freezer

-in Carmarthenshire...

0:05:490:05:53

-..in temperatures

-of -21 degrees Celsius...

0:05:530:05:56

-..Lowri spends two hours

-on the bike.

0:05:570:06:00

-It will be much colder

-in the Yukon...

0:06:000:06:03

-..so it's important to wear

-the correct clothing.

0:06:030:06:07

-You're more likely to get frostbite

-if your skin is wet.

0:06:070:06:13

-You must check to see you can still

-feel your nose, ears and fingers.

0:06:130:06:17

-If not, do something about it.

-Don't keep going.

0:06:180:06:21

-I know what you're like. You don't

-need to do an extra mile on day one.

0:06:210:06:26

-After all, you're competing

-against the environment...

0:06:260:06:30

-..not against the other competitors.

0:06:310:06:33

-Eurwyn helps Lowri to identify

-the symptoms of frostbite.

0:06:340:06:39

-This compass also has a mirror.

0:06:390:06:43

-Use it to monitor yourself and check

-your face when you're competing.

0:06:430:06:48

-We must also consider hypothermia,

-that is, exposure.

0:06:490:06:52

-If you don't listen to your body,

-then it can take hold in minutes.

0:06:530:06:58

-The body needs to be at 37 degrees

-Celsius to function properly.

0:06:580:07:03

-There are several different levels

-of hypothermia.

0:07:030:07:07

-In the freezer, you were shivering.

0:07:070:07:09

-Your hands were shaking.

-You couldn't write.

0:07:100:07:13

-Your legs were shaking.

0:07:130:07:15

-You'd overdone it.

-You were sweating.

0:07:150:07:18

-The clothing wasn't working.

0:07:180:07:20

-This would make you short-tempered,

-and your muscles would fail.

0:07:200:07:24

-Drop below 32 degrees,

-and you'll struggle to walk...

0:07:240:07:28

-..you'll have uncontrollable shivers

-and you'll want to lie in the snow.

0:07:280:07:33

-Death is just around the corner.

0:07:330:07:35

-Eurwyn's strong words emphasize

-the severity of this race.

0:07:350:07:41

-How will Lowri cope

-with the cold weather?

0:07:440:07:47

-She'll spend a weekend

-in the Arctic Circle in Sweden.

0:07:470:07:51

-I'm shivering. I'm so cold.

0:07:510:07:53

-It's a baptism of fire as she faces

-temperatures of -60 degrees Celsius.

0:07:540:08:00

-I don't know how I'll do it.

0:08:000:08:03

0:08:080:08:10

-Lowri Morgan has accepted

-another challenge...

0:08:130:08:17

-..the world's coldest

-and most extreme race...

0:08:170:08:21

-..only ever completed seven times.

0:08:210:08:24

-Six months before the race, Lowri

-wants to learn about her kit...

0:08:280:08:33

-..and become accustomed

-to extreme weather conditions.

0:08:330:08:37

-She leaves Wales

-for a weekend of training...

0:08:370:08:40

-..in the Arctic Circle

-in northern Sweden.

0:08:400:08:43

-Over the next few days...

0:08:440:08:45

-..the aim is to learn to cope and

-survive in such extreme conditions.

0:08:460:08:50

-This race isn't just about fitness.

-Equipment is also important.

0:08:520:08:57

-I need to learn how to survive

-in these conditions.

0:08:580:09:02

-I'll try and stay strong...

0:09:020:09:04

-..but we'll have to wait and see

-because it'll be a real test.

0:09:040:09:08

-Lowri is met in Kiruna, home

-to the indigenous Sami people...

0:09:100:09:15

-..by Nigel Thomas,

-the former elite soldier.

0:09:150:09:18

-What surprise have you got

-in store for me?

0:09:180:09:21

-I'm waiting patiently for it.

0:09:220:09:24

-We've got a 60km journey

-ahead of us.

0:09:240:09:27

-Someone has to drive the van,

-so I'll do that.

0:09:270:09:31

-You've got the pulk,

-so you can start from here.

0:09:310:09:35

-We'll load your pulk

-and fix the harness now.

0:09:350:09:38

-Forty miles?

0:09:390:09:40

-Forty miles?

-

-Forty miles.

0:09:400:09:41

-If you can't do that,

-you'll stand no chance in the race.

0:09:420:09:45

-Straight into the deep end.

0:09:470:09:49

-Who said that working

-in television is glamorous?!

0:09:490:09:52

-She starts

-her 40-mile journey at 2.00pm.

0:09:570:10:02

-It's a lonely journey for Lowri,

-despite Nigel's assistance.

0:10:020:10:08

-She looks comfortable

-after the first hour...

0:10:090:10:12

-..and as the temperature drops,

-she increases her pace.

0:10:120:10:15

-But suddenly, there's a problem.

0:10:160:10:19

-Stop, stop, stop, stop!

0:10:190:10:21

-I had to stop as I was getting hot

-and starting to sweat.

0:10:210:10:26

-That's the last thing

-I want to happen.

0:10:260:10:29

-I don't want to sweat

-in these conditions...

0:10:300:10:33

-..because when you stop,

-the sweat freezes...

0:10:340:10:38

-..and the frostbite kicks in.

0:10:380:10:42

-I was panicking a little.

0:10:430:10:46

-I've never experienced

-these conditions before.

0:10:460:10:50

-This experience is a learning curve.

0:10:570:10:59

-As she experiments with

-the layers of clothing...

0:10:590:11:03

-..she realizes that controlling

-her body isn't her only fear...

0:11:030:11:07

-..as cars whizz past within feet.

0:11:070:11:10

-Her body temperature must remain

-comfortably cool whilst running...

0:11:100:11:15

-..but when she stops, Lowri is

-freezing, and hypothermia sets in.

0:11:150:11:20

-I'm shivering. I'm so cold.

0:11:210:11:23

-My feet are cold.

-Everything is cold.

0:11:280:11:32

-Lowri is given the option

-of warming up in the car...

0:11:400:11:43

-..but she's determined to continue

-and face her fears.

0:11:430:11:47

-Thirty miles remain...

0:11:470:11:49

-..and the temperature drops

-to -40 degrees Celsius.

0:11:490:11:53

-After eight hours, she's emotional.

0:12:000:12:03

-Pulling the pulk is

-at the root of the problem.

0:12:030:12:07

-I'm so frustrated.

0:12:070:12:09

-Running 40 miles at home is nothing

-compared to running in this country.

0:12:090:12:14

-It's so cold and the pulk

-is pulling me back.

0:12:140:12:17

-I literally can't run,

-and I'm struggling.

0:12:170:12:21

-I don't know how I'll do it.

0:12:210:12:24

-Despite the perilous conditions,

-Lowri battles through the night...

0:12:260:12:31

-..and completes the 40 miles

-in a very long 14 hours.

0:12:310:12:37

-Lowri's done well tonight.

0:12:400:12:42

-She's walked 40 miles whilst

-pulling the pulk for the first time.

0:12:420:12:47

-She's done well,

-but she's had a shock.

0:12:470:12:50

-Her feet hurt,

-but she doesn't have blisters.

0:12:500:12:53

-Since she's pulling weight,

-other muscles are working.

0:12:540:12:57

-Her legs are tired too.

0:12:580:13:00

-There's a saying

-in the sporting world...

0:13:000:13:03

-..that pain is

-weakness leaving the body.

0:13:030:13:07

-If that's the case...

0:13:070:13:09

-..then I have a lot of weaknesses

-because I'm suffering.

0:13:090:13:13

-It's been a very difficult 40 miles.

0:13:140:13:17

-For the first 20 miles,

-I used my legs...

0:13:170:13:23

-..and used my head

-for the last 20 miles.

0:13:230:13:27

-It was a real test.

0:13:280:13:30

-Sleep is now her main priority.

0:13:320:13:35

-To recreate racing conditions...

0:13:350:13:37

-..she sleeps in her sleeping bag

-and bivvy.

0:13:380:13:40

-Have you got a pillow?

0:13:410:13:43

-Have you got a pillow?

-

-I'll get one for you now!

0:13:430:13:45

-There you go. See you later.

0:13:470:13:49

-Sleep well.

0:13:490:13:52

-Goodnight!

0:13:570:13:59

-Goodnight.

0:14:030:14:05

-Are you awake?

0:14:170:14:18

-Are you awake?

-

-Yes, I've been awake for a while.

0:14:180:14:20

-Are you cold?

0:14:200:14:22

-Are you cold?

-

-Yes.

0:14:220:14:23

-Have you slept at all?

0:14:230:14:24

-Have you slept at all?

-

-Yes, I slept well at the start.

0:14:240:14:28

-I don't know

-how long I've slept for.

0:14:290:14:32

-You went to bed after 5.00am,

-and it's 9.00am now.

0:14:320:14:37

-I think I've had about three hours.

0:14:370:14:39

-I think I've had about three hours.

-

-Yes, it took time for you to settle.

0:14:390:14:42

-Lowri must acclimatize

-to Arctic conditions...

0:14:440:14:48

-..and learn to dress, pack, drink

-and eat from her sleeping bag...

0:14:480:14:54

-..before starting a new day.

0:14:550:14:57

-Resting in these conditions leads to

-a dramatic drop in body temperature.

0:15:010:15:07

-Lowri warms up with some singing

-exercises she learnt at university.

0:15:080:15:14

-A - E - I - O - U.

-My jaw feels as if it's frozen.

0:15:140:15:19

-We noticed that during breakfast.

0:15:190:15:21

-We noticed that during breakfast.

-

-It's difficult to speak.

0:15:210:15:23

-Next, it's a trip on a Skidoo

-into the depths of Sami country.

0:15:260:15:30

-Nigel and his elite soldiers are

-eager for her to walk on tired legs.

0:15:310:15:36

-The race requires her to complete

-an average of 44 miles a day...

0:15:370:15:42

-..over eight consecutive days.

0:15:430:15:46

-Lowri has no time to appreciate

-the stunning scenery of Kebnekaise.

0:15:460:15:51

-She must listen to her mind and body

-and get used to her survival diet.

0:15:510:15:57

-It's -60 degrees Celsius...

0:15:570:16:00

-..and she must complete a marathon

-in six hours over an icy lake.

0:16:000:16:05

-She completes the task,

-but faces another lesson.

0:16:300:16:33

-Goran, a soldier, drives the Skidoo

-for five minutes without a mask...

0:16:340:16:39

-..to show the effect

-of the extreme weather on his skin.

0:16:400:16:45

-Come here. Can you see it?

0:16:450:16:47

-Look at the white patch.

0:16:470:16:49

-Can you see that? It's frostnip

-which leads to frostbite.

0:16:500:16:54

-After frostbite, it turns black,

-and it's dead skin.

0:16:550:16:59

-You need to place a warm hand on it

-to warm the area.

0:16:590:17:04

-When you're alone, keep a mirror at

-hand and check yourself every hour.

0:17:040:17:09

-There isn't room for any mistakes.

0:17:090:17:11

-It's very serious, and

-I'm glad you've witnessed this...

0:17:110:17:16

-..because without warmth,

-it develops into frostbite.

0:17:160:17:19

-That's what I'm most scared about.

0:17:190:17:22

-Nigel wants to prove that her face

-won't be the only thing to suffer.

0:17:220:17:27

-It's getting cold now.

0:17:270:17:29

-Frostnip develops after dancing

-barefoot in the snow for a minute.

0:17:290:17:35

-I was only in the snow

-for 30 seconds.

0:17:360:17:39

-That's painful.

0:17:400:17:42

-I've got to place my feet

-under his arms.

0:17:420:17:47

-Oh... that's lovely.

0:17:470:17:51

-Lowri is given another test

-whilst Nigel's feet thaw.

0:17:510:17:55

-Nigel has given me a task

-to light a fire with my eyes closed.

0:17:550:18:01

-In the race, it'll be dark,

-I'll be tired...

0:18:010:18:04

-..so I need to learn how to do this.

0:18:040:18:07

-The aim is to practice preparing

-the equipment repeatedly...

0:18:160:18:19

-..so that it becomes an automatic

-process, like tying a shoe lace.

0:18:200:18:26

-And her reward? A dehydrated supper!

0:18:500:18:53

-It isn't as good as what I get

-at home, but it'll do!

0:18:530:18:58

-It'll give me energy,

-keep me warm, and that's important.

0:18:580:19:02

-It's the final morning of training,

-and Lowri is learning the routine.

0:19:170:19:21

-The aim is to stay in the sleeping

-bag for as long as possible.

0:19:210:19:25

-Yes.

0:19:250:19:28

-It's been a unique experience

-in a beautiful country.

0:19:580:20:03

-It's easy to run over 100 miles

-a week at home...

0:20:030:20:07

-..in chambers, the Beacons,

-Snowdonia and the freezers...

0:20:070:20:12

-..but nothing prepares you

-for these extreme conditions.

0:20:130:20:19

-The cold.

0:20:220:20:23

-We've faced temperatures

-of -60 degrees Celsius...

0:20:230:20:27

-..in strong winds.

0:20:280:20:29

-It's been a real shock

-to the system.

0:20:300:20:32

-Despite wearing all these clothes,

-day and night...

0:20:330:20:37

-..nothing prepares you.

0:20:370:20:39

-I've been cold,

-and I've been emotional.

0:20:390:20:43

-The thing that terrifies me most...

0:20:440:20:47

-..is that it's impossible to survive

-without the correct equipment.

0:20:470:20:52

-I'm not very confident,

-but it's been a real eye-opener...

0:20:530:20:57

-..and an important,

-essential lesson.

0:20:570:21:02

-But if I'm totally honest

-with myself...

0:21:030:21:06

-..I'm leaving Sweden having lost

-some of my self-confidence.

0:21:060:21:11

-I think that this race...

0:21:110:21:14

-..is going to be

-very difficult to complete.

0:21:150:21:20

-I'm shaking just thinking about it.

0:21:210:21:23

-It's going to be a real challenge,

-and I don't know if I can do it.

0:21:230:21:28

-I've had an emotional day.

0:21:320:21:35

-I don't normally cry,

-but I haven't stopped today.

0:21:350:21:39

-It's been three days

-since I've returned from Sweden.

0:21:390:21:44

-The fear has taken hold today.

0:21:440:21:49

-I've struggled with my breathing,

-and I've been panicking.

0:21:510:21:57

-I don't want to do it any more.

0:21:570:22:02

-And yet, I've spoken

-on the telephone...

0:22:020:22:06

-..with Eurwyn... Nigel...

0:22:060:22:09

-..and they're all very supportive.

0:22:090:22:13

-They are so supportive.

0:22:220:22:25

-They're helping me, phoning me

-and texting me.

0:22:250:22:29

-I'm really struggling now.

0:22:300:22:32

-It's mentally difficult...

0:22:320:22:35

-..and I'm struggling

-to drag myself outside.

0:22:350:22:39

-I've had such a shock

-after being in Sweden.

0:22:390:22:44

-I'm really trying to stay strong...

0:22:440:22:50

-..but inside,

-I'm shaking like a leaf!

0:22:500:22:53

-When I come home, I'm struggling.

0:22:530:22:56

-The magnitude of this race

-has struck me.

0:22:560:22:59

-I don't think I'm ready

-for this challenge.

0:22:590:23:03

-I don't feel strong.

0:23:040:23:07

-The emotional battle continues

-next time on Ras Yn Erbyn Amser.

0:23:100:23:15

-Lowri tries to face her fears

-by running 100 miles non-stop.

0:23:150:23:21

-I'm too tired to think.

0:23:210:23:24

-Is this one step too far?
