MIND your step

On Friday 18th of July, 10:00am, myself and 12 other brave work colleagues from Squire and Partners will start our ascent of mount Snowdon in Wales. This will mark the beginning of the Three Peaks Challenge we are undertaking.

This will be both a personal challenge and a fund raiser for the MIND charity. And at the time of writing, we have just broken £2000 raised! That’s 2000 reasons to not give up when we are struggling against the cold, the wind and the rain.

For those that don’t know, the three peak challenge is to hike up the tallest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales, and to do so in under 24 hours! This will be no easy task that is for certain. We have chosen to start with Snowdon in Wales as our start point and finish at Ben Nevis in Scotland, the middle mountain being Scafell Pike.

This isn’t the first time I have done something crazy too, I have also sky dived for a local hospice when I was living in Bournemouth. This was a big deal for me as I have a crazy fear of heights/falling, but turned out to be the most exhilarating thing I have ever done!

Hopefully I will make it back in one piece from this adventure, be sure to look out for my tweets as I will be posting run keeper routes and timings after each peak along with small updates on our progress.
