Congratulations to team ISG & JMC, what heroics, from missing persons on Ben Nevis (found safe and sound) to injuries sustained to knees and ankles, brilliant achievement.
An extra well done to those who completed the challenge under the 24hrs especially to our very own mountain goat Mr Dave Hughes – 21 hours and 57 minutes – awesome performance.
For those unaware of this challenge details are as follows:
The National 3 Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland (Ben Nevis @ 1345m), England (Scafell Pike @ 978m) and Wales (Snowdon @1085m), within 24 hours. The total walking distance is 23 miles and the total ascent is 3064m – twice the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, over a similar total walking distance. The total driving distance is 462 miles.
The team have raised in excess of £2,000.00 for a very deserving charity – McMillan Cancer Support, lets have a final push on donations and see if we can hit the £2,500.00 mark, thank you to all those who have already donated JustGiving.
