trek three peaks with EDF Energy
for Marie Curie

overview

This is a closed bespoke challenge for EDF Energy on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Care. If you are interested in organising a bespoke challenge for your company or charity, please get in touch!

The 3 Peaks Challenge is a serious test of strength, stamina and determination where we aim to climb the 3 highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales, all in 24 hours. Our challenge begins in Fort William, Scotland, where we start with an assault on Ben Nevis, the highest of the 3 peaks at 1,344 m, before transferring across country to Scafell Pike in the Lake District. Here we use the last of the day’s light to guide us up to its summit at 978 m. With weary legs and by torchlight, our final test of endurance and determination is to summit Mt. Snowdon, Wales at 1,085 m, and descend before clocking 24 hours. On completing the challenge we enjoy a well deserved celebration brunch with the rest of our team before returning back to London.
