About the group

We are a team of 8 work colleagues and friends attempting to complete the three peaks challenge within 24 hours for Cancer Research UK. The challenge involves climbing the three highest mountains in the UK.
Ben Nevis in Scotland. Height: 1,344m or 4,409 feet.
Scafell Pike in England. Height: 978m or 3,210 feet.
Snowdon in Wales. Height: 1,085m or 3,560 feet.
The road based part of the challenge involves approximately 10 hours of driving over 450-500 miles. Hence a successful challenge allows us only 14 hours of blister inducing mountain hiking to complete the task within the 24 hour time limit.

Fundraising for Cancer Research UK

Every two minutes someone in the UK is told they have cancer, a terrifying prospect which has effected the lives of so many people we know. The ground breaking work into prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer by the charity has seen UK survival rates double in the last 40 years. Still, more than 1 in 3 people will develop cancer at some point in their lives.
Cancer Research UK is not government funded in any way and relies solely on charity donations. Our team is supporting them to raise funds to keep the fight against cancer going until its over.
