'Move-ember' - it's Movember Antarctica style

Down at Scott Base, they're doing 'Movember' Antarctica style.

Instead of a sponsored follicle target, New Zealand's team on the ice is taking on the "move" challenge.

The whole team is on a mission to clock up 2706 kilometres, the distance to the South Pole and back, for what they're calling 'Move-ember'.

It doesn't matter how they move in the area around the base, as long as they move.

ONE News filmed team members walking on the sea ice, skiing, mountain biking and doing an indoor circuit class of running, skipping and other exercises which counts for five kilometres.

The team has already clocked up nearly 1500 kilometres.

"Everyone's really digging in and doing the kilometres, It's really good," says Josh Adams, Scott Base communications operator.

The team wants New Zealanders to donate to the Scott Base Movember fund to raise money for men's health.

With 1200 kilometres left to go, there's a lot more moving to do to show that just because they're at the bottom of the world doesn't mean Scott Base personnel can't back a good cause.
