For those of you who don't know, the Challenge involves getting up and down the three highest peaks in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafel Pike), and Wales (Snowdon), with an aim to do all of this within a 24 hour period. They started at 6pm on Friday night at the foot of Ben Nevis. At 6:35 on Saturday they arrived back down at the bottom of Snowdon, quite exhausted, having not slept for 37 hours and having walked 25 miles, of which half was a steep incline.

Unfortunately the total time was a little over the 24 hours planned, due to the trip from Scafel to Snowdon taking 2 hours longer than expected, leaving only 2 hours 45 minutes to get up and down Snowdon in high winds and dense fog! That said, a lot of people class the Three Peaks as finishing at the top of Snowdon, which they did in 22 Hours and 50 minutes! The total walking time for the Three Peaks was a little over 10 hours.
