3 Peaks Challenge for Cancer Research

3 Peaks Challenge for Cancer Research

The Challenge was 25 miles long and a circular walk from Horton in Ribblesdale. There are 3 peaks to climb, Pen-y-ghent (2271 ft), Whernside (2414 ft) and Ingleborough (2372 ft).  The walk and climb is generally described as quite strenuous but in good conditions,  for those active climbers with a reasonable level of fitness the challenge is expected to be completed within 9 -13 hours.

Saturday 12th July 2014, was a hot, sunny day, perhaps a little too warm at times but Sharon stepped up to accomplish her latest goal. Out of a group of 18, only 8 managed to complete within the 12 hours, Sharon being one of them. Sharon personally completed the walk in a staggering 9hrs & 45 mins, quite a achievement. Sharon was raising money for a wonderful cause, and client of Monro, Cancer Research UK. We are still counting and collecting the total funds but will be sure to let you know how much was raised.Every penny counts and we are extremely proud of our fundraising superstar. Well done Sharon Hurst!
