Running two marathons per day for 11 months will get you from the North Pole to the South Pole. And Pat Farmer is aiming to raise $100 million for the Australian Red Cross by doing just that.
Farmer, a supermarathoner and former Federal Minister of Australian Parliament and Parliament Secretary for Education, Science and Training, plans to make the trip running through 14 countries along the way. He will start in the Arctic Circle and will eventually conclude his long journey in Antarctica around February, 2012. Farmer talks to T. J. Holmes about his impending challenge.
