Three Peaks Challenge – August 10th/11th

After my pleasant walking holiday in Scotland last year (the Caledonian Challenge, a double-marathon along the West Highland Way in twenty-four hours), and as a warm up for this October’s Loch Ness Marathon, I’ve signed up at the last minute for the Three Peaks Challenge, in aid of the Anthony Nolan Trust.

I’m attempting to climb Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m), and Mount Snowdon (1,085m) – the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales. In twenty-four hours.

That’s 26 miles of hiking up and down mountains (a marathon), and 475 miles of driving.

I need your help, and you can help in two ways. Either come and pick me up from the foot of Mount Snowdon around 4pm on Sunday 11th August, and drive me back to London while I sleep, or else SPONSOR ME! If I raise 500 then Credit Suisse will match it, doubling your donation.

Here’s me at the end of last year’s Cally Challenge, just in case you think I don’t work for your money.

This being my new life, though, and not my old life, I only had a sip of the tea, and the ape’s knee-cap, before heading out for more […]
