Two weeks to go until the final fundraising challenge of 2015: the Welsh 3000s. The team will summit the 15 highest peaks in Wales in 9 hours, travelling 42 kilometres and ascending over 3600 metres!
Split into relay teams, the first will start at Foel-fras at the Northern end of the Carneddau range in order to meet the next 11 kilometres away. The second team will cover 12 kilometres and ascend 1600 metres before handing over to the final team who will complete the route on the Summit of Mount Snowdon after 8 kilometres and 1000 metres of ascent. In total, the day will consist ofsummiting 15 mountains over 3000 feet above sea level; we’re aiming for under 9 hours on a route where most people can barely achieve 12.
Taking in well known peaks such as Carnedd Llewelyn, Tryfan and Snowdon, the Welsh 3000s is a final fling of difficulty in a year which has seen the team successful drag a tyre along a marathon route, complete 200 outdoor climbs in the Peaks and complete a half ironman on the Isle of Wight all in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
