Our Head of Research, Jordan Crossley took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks’ route is 24 miles and includes 2,154m of ascent of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent.
Jordan raised over £500 for the Alzheimer’s Society, which provides essential care and support to those caring for and living with the condition.
On the day of the challenge, which is normally completed in under 12 hours, Jordan and a team of walkers, were blessed with relatively good weather.
He said: “It was much tougher than I’d initially expected, but every step was worthwhile knowing that we were raising money for such a great cause.
“There was a real community spirit, over 500 walkers took part on the day, and I was very pleased when we achieved a time of 7 hours 33 minutes.
“I’d highly recommend taking on the challenge, however it’s not for the faint hearted and my personal advice to anyone would be to make sure you are stocked up with flapjacks and jelly babies!”
