On Saturday 20 August, colleagues of JCT600 once again set out on the annual Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for our nominated Charity, The Prince’s Trust
The challenge involves a 24 mile walk, climbing the Pennine peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and is usually completed in this order and in less than 12 hours.
However, the weather conditions on the day were extremely tough with heavy downpours and poor visibility, meaning that only a select few managed to complete the 3 peaks, with the majority only able to do 2 peaks before the walk was abandoned due to safety concerns.
‘The weather was hideous on the day, and had to be abandoned due to safety reasons before we were able to start the 3rd peak. We still managed to complete 2 peaks which was a big achievement considering the day we had!’ commented Sam Tordoff.
Well done to everyone that took part, whether you managed to complete 1, 2 or 3 peaks on the day. We just pray that next year the weather will be a little kinder to us.
