It’s what we’ve all been waiting for, the ultimate test is fast approaching - Coull are taking on the Three Peaks Challenge. On the 12th September, the bravest of our team members will be attempting to walk up the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours.
Why the devil are they doing this to themselves? Well, aside from the personal accomplishment and infinite man-points, they’re doing it to raise money for a charity event that we are taking part in. Byte Night 2014 involves a sponsored sleepout and is dedicated to fundraising for Action for Children, with the specific aim of tackling the root causes of homelessness. In order to take part in the sleepout in October, we need to raise £2,500 for the cause. To find out more and about the other fundraising efforts we’ve come up with, click here.
Within 24 hours the team of 6 will have to tackle:
Ben Nevis, Scotland 1344 meters (4409 ft)
Scafell Pike, England 978 meters (3,209 ft)
Snowdon, Wales 1,085 meters (3,560 ft)
The team will be leaving midday on Friday, starting the ascent of Ben Nevis at 6am Saturday and finishing at the base of Snowdon at 6am on Sunday. This is a dangerous mission, especially since they will be doing it through the night! To find out more about the Three Peaks Challenge, visit the website.
So far we’re about 30% of the way to our target, so we’ve certainly got a mountain to climb! Please show your support by donating anything you can via our Just Giving page and reference the Three Peaks Challenge. Thank you!
