Group G

At the end of June 12 intrepid explorers from Group G, set off on a mission to complete the 'Three Peaks Challenge', which sees trekkers attempt to scale Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon all within 24 hours.

As if the challenge was not hard enough, the group were faced with adverse weather conditions, a 3 am start and no opportunities to sleep.

The team were successful however, finishing with only 20 minutes to spare.
