The Three Peaks 24hr hike starts 29th June and Saturday saw the first training session take place in anticipation of the challenge. Mike Waterfield arranged a walk which he regularly takes around the Narborough/Littlethorpe area. It’s a circular walk that lasted around 2.5 hours mainly due to the muddy/wet conditions as you can see in the pictures.
Abbie Henshaw one of TorrWaterfield’s semi-senior accountants took part in the walk on Saturday. At 19 Abbie is our youngest member taking part in the challenge, here are some reasons why she decided to take on The Three Peaks.
“I decided to take part in the challenge as I have never taken part in anything like this before. I have recently joined a gym and have really enjoyed it and when this opportunity arose I decided it was something I wanted to do. I have the least amount of experience with long distance walking but I’m really looking forward to the challenge. I plan to train a lot between now and the challenge. I have been walking with another Torrwaterfield colleague, Rebecca Edwards who is more experienced so she is putting me through my paces and I plan on attending all of the organised training walks.”
