Three Peaks - A Magnifient Challenge

The aim of the challenge set back in January was to climb the Three highest Peaks over a 24hr period ……..and the Team from HCC Sixth Form succeeded in this remarkable challenge last weekend in a total time of 23hrs and 32 minutes. This was a triumphant end to months of preparation and training by all of the team. The climbing team which was made up of 6 sixth form students and 5 staff  were supported by 3 back up crew who negotiated the roads in the early hours and refuelled them with food and water to keep to the 24hr deadline they had set themselves.

The students aim was  to raise awareness of the importance of keeping fit and active for both physical and mental well-being as well as raising money for the Dartmoor Rescue Team .
