This September a team of 30 of us from Sheffield Haworth's London office will be climbing the Three Peaks to raise £20,000 for Cancer Research UK. To make the weekend a little more of a challenge I will be running the Great North Run 24 hours after completing the 3 Peaks as part of #12medalsin12months
The Three Peaks consists of walking the three largest peaks across Scotland, England and Wales; starting at Ben Nevis, moving swiftly on to Scafell Pike and finishing at Snowden. Taking on three mountains in short succession is a challenge in itself but we have the added pressure of aiming to complete all three within 24 hours which will really put our team to the test having had little sleep and potentially battling inclement weather (we have our fingers crossed for sunshine!).
To explain #12medalsin12months I am doing 12 endurance events in the 12 months of 2019. The month of September sees me take part in the 3 Peaks Challenge Friday 6th-Saturday 7th September. I will then make the 220 mile trip to Newcastle to run the Great North Run on Sunday 8th September. Half marathon after a marathon mountain walk on zero sleep all for a fantastic cause!
