Trekfest 2013: Peaks Challenge

Raising money for: Macmillan Cancer Support

Stef R

The Challenge

Walking 54miles in 24hours, scaling 5000meters including Kinder Scout via Jacons Ladder.

The Charity

In memory of my Granddad Allan and Grandma Beryl who lost their fights with Cancer and to support Macmillan in their aim to support all people suffering with Cancer

The Training

Of 153 who set out, 62 finished. We set off at 10am on 6/7/13 and I finished at 9:15am on 7/7/13. I'd spent 3 and a half months training which included getting up at 3am on the weekends to get in as many miles as possible. The weekend we did the challenge was especially hot and I think this took it's toll on some of the other trekkers. The blisters were worth every step.
