First 3 Peaks update

First 3 Peaks update


Morning clerkenwell,

This message comes from Andrew, Ian, ali and Emma live from the mini bus hurtling towards fort William at Ben. Nevis.

Every time someone is adding to our justgiving page we are getting an update with the message and how much. This is already causing excitement and spurring us on – we haven’t even started climbing yet so please all promote our page to your contacts this weekend! We are going to need lots of encouragement looking at the weather forecast.

Latest Ben Nevis forecast is 50mph winds, snow blizzards and minus 17 at the summit. We are likely to be starting slightly earlier than planned at about 3pm for safety and to beat nightfall as the conditions are quite trecherous.

We will send you these updates and photos when we can – a lot of areas have no signal (snowdon for sure) so don’t panic if you don’t get an update -we are possibly just out of range. Phone batteries also will not last.

Here is how we prepared last night with the team from capital and wimbledon half way on our journey in Carlisle. Just made our last stop for supplies ready to cook on our stove.

All feeling positive and excited – if a little wary about the weather. Need all your help with sponsorship! Hope you are having nice weekends.
From the 3 peaks team
