Three Peaks of Great Britain Challenge

Last weekend my work collegues and I did the three peaks callenge. The callenge is to climb the three peaks of Great Britain in 24 hours or less. The three peaks of Great Britain are Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (England) and Snowden (Wales).

It was one of the most difficult things that I have ever done. I thought I would be fine doing the callenge without specific training because I am quite fit and play football a couple of times a week. I WAS WRONG. If you try to do the callenge please do some specific training before attempting it.

I completed the challenge in 22 hours 57 minutes. I am glad I did it but I won't attempt it again in a hurry.

Yes it's worth a try for sure. I went with some work collegues.

I wouldn't really call it hiking or camping. It is mostly walking with a few section where you have to scramble abit.
