We did it!!

Yesterday we completed the 24.6 mile Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge with our friends at Lancaster University Boat Club-LUBC Rowing. We scaled the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in just under the 12 hour time limit specified by the challenge!

The walk was incredibly arduous and really pushed our physical and mental capacities, as well as our map reading ability, to the limit. We battled through several feet of snow and dense fog. At the end of the day we were very proud of ourselves, very thankful for Lancaster's great company and support but ultimately very glad that we chose to do a sport where we get to sit down!

Thank you for supporting us and donating generously!
