Valour 2016 Three Peaks Challenge – Saturday 16th July 2016
Help us raise over £5,000 for the Together Trust to send a group of deprived children on a week long adventure holiday of a lifetime.
On Saturday 16th July a team from Valour Finance Group are planning on take part in a 'Three Peaks Challenge' climbing the three highest mountains in England. We will be attempting to summit Ben Nevis, Scaffel Pike, and Snowden all within 24 hours.
Why is this a tough challenge?
We will depart from fort William at 2 pm Saturday when we will transfer to the start of the challenge at the foot of Ben Nevis. The ascent and descent of Ben Nevis takes around 4-5 hours. We then drive to the Lake District. The home to the biggest mountains in England and head to Scaffel Pike where we drive into the valley. The pike is then climbed from Thirlmere and the ascent and descent takes around 4-5 hours. After meeting up with the support vehicle again we now travel in the dark heading for Snowdon, the last of our peaks which overlooks Wales. Typically completed in the dark Snowdon can be done in 4-5 hours and we arrive back at the foot of the mountain on Sunday some time before 2pm.
This is an endurance challenge that pushes many to their physical limits. The clock starts once our team leave the vehicle on foot at the base of Ben Nevis and will only finish once we have descended Snowdon and arrive back at the vehicle.
The team are looking for sponsorship for the 2016 event with all proceeds raised being donated to the "Together Trust" a local charity based in Cheadle which looks after and rehabilitates children with special needs and children that have been abused or abandoned by their parents of carers.
