Fleet news logo

A team of 19 Zenith employees has completed the National Three Peaks Challenge, raising over £3,200 for charity.

Zenith undertook the challenge in aid of BEN, Mountain Rescue England and Wales and Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids. The task involved climbing the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales, a total distance of 42 kilometres with an ascent of 3,000 metres, in just 24 hours. This included 9.5 hours driving and 14 hours walking.

Prior to the National Three Peaks Challenge, the Zenith team prepared with several walks including tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

The challenge began at Ben Nevis at 7am on Saturday 1st June. This was followed by Scarfell Pike at 6pm and the Snowdon climb which commenced at 3.30am on Sunday morning. All 19 employees completed the challenge by 7am on Sunday 2nd June.

Ian Hughes Zenith’s commercial director said: “For all 19 employees to complete this challenge and raise such a large amount of money for several worthy causes is a massive achievement in itself. It’s also great that everyone worked together to keep each other going through the challenge, which was not only a physical challenge but also one that involved very little sleep within the 24 period.”
