Three Peaks preparation underway!

30/04/2012

Ten hardy employees of the Hilton-Baird Group are embarking on one of the most gruelling challenges the UK has to offer to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The Three Peaks Challenge, which involves climbing the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales inside 24 hours, is well renowned for its degree of difficulty. And with the aid of several training exercises to get the team into shape, we will be climbing the 26 miles up and down Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon over one weekend in September 2012.

Stage one of the training programme was a 27 mile walk between two of the south coast’s most iconic landmarks, Winchester to Salisbury Cathedrals, which took place last weekend.

Amid testing weather conditions, the walk took 8 hours and 45 minutes to complete. With numerous blisters and aching limbs to show for it, it serves as a good benchmark for each of us in our respective training programmes ahead of the main event in September.
