Well its the day before we travel up to Fort William (Scotland) to start the 3 Peaks Challenge.

I am part of a team of 4 who are climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon (UKs 3 highest mountains) in 24 hours. Which is a challenge in itself because of the distances we have to travel between each mountain range.

There are 50 teams entering this year and we have been training hard - i have attached some pictures from the training weekend on Scafell Pike back in March.

Its all in aid of serveral childrens charities - so for a great cause!!

Wow, good luck! :)

Some friends did that a couple of years ago and came down the wrong valley from Sca Fell Pike... what a nightmare. They had to climb back up again.

Well i'm back from doing the 3 Peaks and i have to say it was fantastic if not the hardest thing that i have ever done. We got back on Monday after a weekend of practically no sleep - i am still very tired, i think it will take me the whole week for my body to feel normal again!

This is me and a couple of my walking buddies at the start of Ben Nevis:
