The team from Northampton-based Winvic successfully completed the 24hr 3 Peaks Challenge, raising a massive £5,300 for our charity. Here’s what they had to say about the challenge;
We completed the 3 peaks challenge in under 24 hours, setting off Thursday afternoon from EMDC Plot 1 Castle Donington and driving up to Ben Nevis where the challenge would start. Over the next 24 hours, we would climb over 3290 meters, walk 23 miles and drive a distance of 462 miles, finishing up at Snowdon in Wales.
The views up Ben Nevis were absolutely stunning however this soon changed when we reached the summit and the clouds took over and the temperature dropped to a cool 2 degrees. Scafell Pike was a different challenge as we started this under the cover of darkness summiting just after 2 am. The final push up Snowdon was extremely difficult after already completing 2 mountains with very little sleep. This was a huge challenge both mentally and physically but after a big final push, it was all over.
A huge thank you to the team that completed the challenge, and all their very generous supporters.
What’s the next challenge?!
