In an amazing feat of endurance, 9 members of Cooper Lomaz including two Directors completed the national three peaks challenge last weekend in aid of local caregiving charity, Break.

Covering a total of over 1,000 driving miles and 27 miles on foot, this truly was remarkable for 9 people who spend 40 hours a week sitting at a desk!

The first stop was Ben Nevis in Scotland where after a few isotonic beverages in The Ben Nevis pub the night before, our intrepid mountaineers set out on part one of their journey with the highest ascent of the trip, a whopping 4,409ft.

Next we made the journey back into England to clamber the 3,209ft up Scafell Pike which we made it up in the pitch black, guided only by torches.

Our final stop was Mount Snowdon in Wales which we’re not going to lie, was a struggle as the first two mountains had taken a toll on our poor knees but we made it and the views were incredible after not really seeing the view over Scafell Pike as it was dark!

The National Three Peaks Challenge was one of the most difficult, yet fun things we’ve ever done. It was a great team building activity and we managed to raise an incredible £2,383.75 for Break, which is a wonderful charity.

Well done to Emma O’Brien, Mark Fletcher, Simon Brown, Alex Hall, Liam Flegg, Richard Beastall, Philip Watson, Stuart Wilson and Thomas Dykes for completing the National Three Peaks Challenge in 28 hours!
