Notes from the Day:
Walk completed by the team ranging from 13 years to 70 years of age in under 12 hours in glorious sunshine. There a few blisters, many stiff limbs and bright red legs and arms but we’re pleased that we’ve raised money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Any additional donations are most welcome and appreciated.
You can submit your own challenge, photographs and charity information to the Think Adventure website for free. It’s a great way to promote your Yorkshire Three Peaks walk.
