5 Peaks Challenge

What a weekend we had for the 2019 5 Peaks Challenge. A team of intrepid adventurers took on 5 mountains over 36 hours and absolutely smashed it!

A huge thank you to North West Adventure Tours who organised and led the climbs and looked after our volunteers exceptionally well. 

We are looking at dates for 2020 and all information will be released here in the coming months.
