Three Peaks Challenge

On a cold, dark and wet September morning, 27 enthusiastic Nexus-athletes set off on a mammoth challenge to conquer Yorkshire’s very own Three Peaks – Pen-Y-Gent, Whernside and Ingleborough. The challenge was to complete all 3 peaks in under 12 hours; a route of over 24 miles including 5,200 foot of ascent!

Unfortunately due to the horrendous weather, not everyone who took part was able to complete all 3 peaks, however special mention goes to Bevan Griggs and Krzysztof Hankus who completed all 3 in under 10 hours! And not forgetting the support team, who were on hand all day.

The team in total have raised a staggering £4,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity, which will go towards supporting young people who are faced with cancer.

Congratulations to all who took part – we’re all extremely proud of you!
