Three Peaks Challenge Archive


Team van Oosterom

This challenge took place on Monday, 12 June, 2017.

About the group

We are fit young men, two of us (Nick and Alex) have done the Three Peaks challenge before in 2013 (though over the course of three days, not 24 hours). We are not naive about this but we know that this is meant to be a challenge, aiming to do it in 24 hours, starting at 5pm on Monday 12th with Ben Nevis and finishing Mt. Snowdon at 5pm on Tuesday 13th. We have checked the weather forecast as well as your site and have put together a comprehensive kit list of clothing and other necessities. We know the weather is not ideal with rain and a little wind, but feel it is possible to still complete the challenge.

Fundraising for Anthony Nolan

My (Nick's) father, James van Oosterom, died a year ago of leukemia. James was an avid walker and hiker himself and so we shall be doing this hike in memory of him and for Anthony Nolan charity.
