This challenge took place on Saturday, 9 September, 2017.
About the group
The team, consisting of our resident IT Geek, who prefers flying to walking, a 57 year old practical joker, and DMN's Managing Director (who is the only fit one of the bunch) are aiming to scale Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in the traditional 24 hour 'Three Peaks Challenge'.
Supported by two drivers, and one first aider/bacon sandwich maker, they plan to be up and down all 3 mountains between 5am on September 9th and 5am September 10th.
We will be arranging lots of ways to take your generous donations, including 'Sponsor a Blister', 'Penny a Foot', and a 'Guess the Number of Steps' competition with some fantastic prizes up for grabs! We will also be holding a social evening before the event, and many, many more!
