Over the weekend a few of the Jorvik team took on the challenge of the National Three Peaks.

The National Three Peaks challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours.

Starting with Ben Nevis (Scotland) battling the needle like rain and 50mph winds, undertaking the mammoth climb of 1345m, what felt like a short drive to the next mountain Scafell Pike (England) the team were met with humidity and fine rain to climb 978m in the dark and, finally after a short sleep in the minibus on the way to the third and final mountain; Snowdon (Wales) we managed to climb 1085m whilst watching the sunrise.
