Back in 2009 Torr Waterfield completed the Yorkshire three peaks challenge. Well that was just the warm up…..now it’s time for the real thing. The Torr Waterfield team are taking on all three peaks Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden.
The aim is to complete the three peaks in 24 hours and raise as much money as possible for Bamboozle Theatre Charity. Please click here to take a look at the wonderful work they do.
The Basic Outline of the challenge:
Friday 28th June – Travel to Fort William (420 miles – 8 hours) & stay overnight
Saturday 29th June – 5pm start climbing Ben Nevis (1344 meters – 10.5 miles up and down)
10pm – Finish Ben Nevis and start drive to Scafell Pike (245 miles – 6 hours)

Over the next few months leading up to the challenge there will be lots of training (and no doubt lots of blisters). We will keep you posted each week with how the training is going, the donations being raised and why members of the team chose to take on the demanding challenge.
