Walkers complete the challenge despite tough conditions
Last weekend, 22 hardy walkers scaled the highest mountains in Scotland, England, and Wales to raise money for the Community Sports Foundation.
After travelling from Carrow Road to the Scottish Highlands on Thursday, the group began their first ascent on Friday morning, tackling Great Britain’s highest peak Ben Nevis, which stands at over 4,411 feet.
With one peak under their belts, the group drove south to take on Scafell Pike in the Lake District. The 2,992 feet of England’s highest mountain provided a different challenge for the walkers, as they set off into the night with head torches to light their way.
By Saturday morning, the group had conquered two thirds of their challenge, leaving the Welsh peak of Snowdon, aching muscles, and a lack of sleep to contend with, as they bravely battled towards the finish line.
Snowdon’s peak is 3,560 feet above sea level, and every step was a test of body and mind, but by 8pm on Saturday evening, each walker had reached the summit and returned to the bottom for hearty congratulations from the Community Sports Foundation’s support team.
The challenge has raised over £5,000 for the Foundation so far, with donations continuing to come in.
