The challenge involved climbing the three highest peaks in Wales; Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen y Fan.
 
Snowdon
Height: 1085m / 3560ft
Trek distance: 10 km
 
Cadair Idris
Height: 893m / 2930ft
Trek distance: 9 km
 
Pen y Fan
Height: 886m / 2907ft
Trek distance: 6 km
 
The first team started their Snowdon ascent at around 4.45am and the last team completed Pen y Fan at around 9.45pm, meaning it took just 17 hours for the team to climb all three!
  
Now that we've completed this incredible challenge, we would like to go one step further and take on the national three peaks in 2017. So grab your walking boots, get training and put the 16th and 17th of June in your diary, this is one challenge you don't want to miss! More details to come soon.
