This Wednesday Ben Richardson and his friend Adam, supported by Virginia (Ben's wife) intend to climb 24 peaks in the Lake District, each over 2,400ft, in 24 hours. The challenge consists of 31 miles of walking, as the crow flies, coupled with approximately 14,000 feet of climbing in rugged terrain. This is usually done in teams of 5 over 2 days. However, they shall be undertaking to complete the challenge in a team of two in one 24 hour block. This means they shall have the extra challenge of carrying everything that they need, having no sleep and navigating at night.
An amazing selfless act of bravery and determination to support the campaign! Huge thanks to them and also for the Active Nation Open Day held last Saturday 17th July which also raised funds and to everyone involved for their kindness!
