The team are all ramping up their efforts to be fit and ready to take on the National 3 Peak challenge on 23rd June. Last weekend separate teams were training in the Peaks District as well as Scotland, in doing so they’ve been pelted by horizontal rain, gale force winds, hail and a little sunshine all in aid of a great charity the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
The National Three Peaks challenge isn’t to be taken lightly, the team will be climbing for approximately 13 hours, within a 24hr period as well as 11hrs in the car driving between mountains.
By climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours, we’re going to be walking 37km, with a total ascent of 3408m:
Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1345m)
Scafell Pike, in England (978m)
Snowdon, in Wales (1085m)
The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying fromheart and circulatory disease in the UK, but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives.
It’s only thanks to support from donations that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. Just 24pounds could pay for 2 hours of research, by an early career scientist.
So if you can skip your morning trip to Starbucks (other coffee vendors are available!) and donate the money instead, it will be greatly received – every pound counts!
Watch out for our next update on the 8th June, as the team attempt the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, which is over 2000m of climbing and approximately 40km of walking over a 10hr period.
