Our Mark Does The Three Peaks Challenge

Mark Goddard from technical services is back at Potts Print (UK) in one piece after completing the Three Peaks Challenge. He and two friends climbed a total of 11,178 ft and hiked a distance of 24 miles over three countries in 24 hours.

The three peaks are Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales. They are the highest mountains in each of the countries.

Their adventure raised over £1500 for Cancer Research UK – which will grow to over £2000 with Gift Aid.

Snowdon – the final challenge

Taking part in the challenge alongside Mark were Nick Weir and Tom Dixon, with Tom’s dad Pete driving them between the mountains in time to finish each one on a strict timescale and keeping up their morale.
