On the Sunday just gone, the 3 Peaks Challenge team took on England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike, in their 6th and final training walk for the 3 Peaks Challenge at the end of the month.

We started the walk from Seathwaite in Borrowdale, one of the countries wettest locations. Fortunately for us the weather was on our side, presenting us with ideal walking conditions. It was a little chilly towards the top but it’s to be expected at 978m above sea level!

For much of the walk we followed the path up Grains Gill, a stunning stream with a great collection of waterfalls and rock pools. We then made our way up to the scrambley ascent that is a challenge for even the most experienced of walkers. We lunched on the top of the pike and came across this little beauty!

 

It was a fantastic day with all the team completing the walk in under 5 hours. A very encouraging end to the training! All that remains now is to wish everyone taking part the best of luck in the upcoming challenge and encourage everyone to please sponsor the brave people doing this difficult challenge as we try raise as much money as possible for our charity for the year Mancunian Way.
