**an update from Emma Wilson**

Hi Clerkenwell,

Just to confirm as the last live update couldn’t be sent from my dead phone – we did indeed conquer Snowdon getting safely down at about 10.30pm just as darkness settled in last night. I will let the rest of the team tell you about quite how tough it was and the extremity of the weather conditions at the meeting on Thursday…needless to say it was a huge mental and physical challenge and very testing especially with the sleep deprivation involved.

Thanks from all of us for the donations on the justgiving page, the words of encouragement, the amazing raffle and auction prizes so far as well as help with printing and designing tickets – and for the excellent driver who drove the Made Simple bus that we shared who was fantastic at having our hot food ready each time we came down off the mountain and keeping us motivated. Be great to keep up the momentum to gain donations on the page http://www.justgiving.com/BNI-3Peaks-Challenge-Clerkenwell up to the event on the 16th. Intended to send photos of the team on the peaks but have currently misplaced my camera lead so coming soon – in the mean time here are some of the weather conditions as caught on camera by one of the other teams.

Hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday – from the three peaks team.

Hi clerkenwell,

Team completed Ben Nevis at 10pm last night and completed scarfel this morning. It’s another world up there – snow blizzards on Ben Nevis and 70 mile per hour winds on scarfel. Been very tough weather conditions up there and we got lost on journey to scarfel so all running behind but determined to finish the last mountain. Our legs have seized up now, blisters come out and all completely exhausted running on just a few hours sleep in the mini bus. The pyg track at snowdon is lots of vertical climbing we should arrive there about 5.30 and straight up to get done before nightfall.

If we can get just giving upto £750 this weekend  – that means with giftaid we are upto £1000 for this weekend which would be very very motivating! please help us spread the link
