This challenge was very close to Adam’s heart as it was one of his goals he wanted to achieve.
We, therefore, feel proud that The Three Peaks team of six guys have taken up this challenge (for him), to represent the charity’s aim of spreading the word globally and to raise Altitude Illnesses Awareness as their focus.
Mark, James, Allan, Russell, Martin and James set of on Sunday morning for their long 10/12 hrs journey to Scotland.
Their Three Peaks in 24 hrs challenge started at the foot of Ben Nevis late Monday afternoon, for the 5 hrs climb, when once finished, a 6 hrs van journey to Scarfell Pike was to come.
Climbing a mountain in the dark is a challenge in itself, but Scafell Pike in 4 hrs of darkness was quite a trek and this followed by another 4 hrs van journey to Snowden and another 5 hrs climb in store, makes for an experience never to be forgotten.
The grueling challenge completed, not only raised Altitude Illnesses Awareness, but funds over £500 for the charity, as well as Adam’s six colleagues and friends conquering The Three Peaks, make this an amazing achievement!
Massive respect and congratulations guys!!
We all did Adam very proud!!
