Challenge completed in 23hrs 24mins

The 3 Peaks 24 hour challenge is not a sightseeing tour, there’s no time for sitting around on the mountains eating picnics. Statistics show that 90% of people do complete all 3 peaks, however only around 40% manage it in less than 24 hours!

The Azzure challenge team triumphantly completed this fantastic feat on Monday 24th June at 3.54pm. The challenge required the team to walk over 40km and climb over 3000m as well as having practically no sleep for 36 hours. Whilst it was incredibly challenging, the banter was flowing to keep the spirits high, everyone worked together and pushed on to complete it in a cracking time.

The Support team

The climbers couldn’t have completed the challenge if it wasn’t for their support team, who included both would-be climbers and company directors. It’s noticed that they’ve managed to stay out of the photo’s, however a special thanks also needs to go out to the four of them in ensuring that the climbers where ferried safely, fed and watered between each peak. Good job guys, thank you.

The pictures show:

  • Start of Challenge – Late Sunday
  • Top of Ben Nevis – 7.20 pm
  • Top of Scafell Pike – 4.55 am
  • Top of Snowdon – 1.40 pm
  • End of Challenge – 3.54 pm

The British Heart Foundation

This challenge was taken on for many individual personal reasons, but overarching those it’s all been in aid and support of The British Heart Foundation (BHF).

It can’t be stressed enough the great work that the BHF do. They’ve helped halve the number of people dying from heart 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 24 pounds could pay for 2 hours of research, by an early career scientist.

The Azzure team set off on this National 3 Peaks challenge to raise 3k for this excellent charity. At the time of posting this update we’d achieved nearly 65% of that target, so please take a moment to donate a few pounds and help us reach the goal – every pound counts!

Thanks
