It is 6.30pm on a balmy late-summer evening in Chamonix in the French Alps. Along with 2300 other competitors I stand on the start line of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc. Before us lie 166km (103 miles) of running and walking, and a net climb and descent of 9500m.
In March 2009, 61 year old Roger Davies, from Surrey, set off on foot from Resolute Bay in Canada, in a 400 mile attempt to reach the North Pole before twenty other determined competitors. However, unlike the other competitors in the Polar Race 2009 he wore a specially made Harold Pinchbeck watch.
