TEAM CE TAKE ON THE YORKSHIRE THREE PEAKS!
As part of our ongoing commitment to raising money for our partner charity St Gemmas Hospice, some of the team recently tackled the Yorkshire Three Peaks!
The walk is a blister inducing 24 miles covering Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Beautiful views but a hard earned hike in order to see them!
The team undertook this monumental effort last Saturday waking up at 4am to ensure they were at the start line nice and early! The walk was completed in 10 hours and 45 mins, not bad considering the mixed ability of walkers – from the superfit to the self-confessed couch potatoes, everyone worked together to get to the finish and a well-earned drink in the pub!
For all the stat fans out there, see below for some key facts:
4000 calories burnt
10 Broken nails (and two lost ones!)
Overall the team managed to raise a fantastic £1747.00 (and counting!) Well done to everyone involved, here’s to the next event!
