US South Pole team in London before starting trek

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) - A team of wounded U.S. service members is in London this week for a publicity tour before starting a fundraising race to the South Pole with Britain's Prince Harry.

The U.S. team is organized by the Colorado group Soldiers to Summits. Director Jason Eckman says team members were among the thousands who marched in London's Remembrance Sunday parade.

They'll leave Sunday to head to Antarctica to compete against teams of wounded service personnel from the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Prince Harry will race with the U.K. team. "True Blood" actor Alex Skarsgard will race with the Americans on the 208-mile trek.

Representing the U.S. are Ivan Castro of Fort Bragg, N.C., Mark Wise of Colorado Springs, Therese Frentz of Del Rio, Texas and Margaux Mange of Yuma, Ariz.
