The countdown has begun and there are only 36 days till the challenge commences. The whole team have been incredibly busy over the last few weeks cramming in as much training as they can. The team have practised Scafell Pike whilst also filling their weekends with various other gruelling hikes. The team members involved are Matt Green, Tom Simpson, Mike Waterfield, Stuart Caney, Matt Smith, Bev Atkins, Julia Harrison, Tom Luckett, Becky Edwards along with some of their partners and friends.
Team member Stuart Caney has been putting in lots of training,
“I have previously walked to the top of both Snowdon and Scafell Pike, so I know what I am letting myself in for… and I am NOT looking forward to it!
For a bunch of accountants who sit behind a desk all day, this is going to be a really tough challenge!
We have all been training hard, clocking up a lot of miles and trying to incorporate as many hills as possible along the way (we recently walked the ‘3 peaks of Charnwood’… same thing, right?)
Hopefully all the training will pay off and we will all A) survive, and B) get round in less than 24 hours.”
The next team practice is Mount Snowdon which will be the 9th June. Here are some pictures from the Scafell Pike hike and a few from other hikes the team have been on.
