Yorkshire Three Peaks – we did it (just)

I would like to say thank you to all those who have generously sponsored us. Over £500 has now been raised; the final total will be split between CHASA (Crayke Home and School Association) and purchasing a defibrillator for Crayke Sports Club & Village Hall.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Yorkshire Three Peaks is the most underestimated walking challenge in Britain. At 24.5 miles and with over 1,500m of ascent it was our toughest walking challenge to date. To put it another way, we walked almost a marathon distance and climbed higher than Ben Nevis in under 12 hours.  It was an extremely tough and challenging day; both physically and mentally!

We completed the walk in 11 hours and 40 minutes; we were pleased with this considering the high temperatures we encountered.

    Well done Mr Buttery, a gallant effort. Today was both mentally and physically draining, I know in parts we could have quite happily quit, however, knowing you had such an important sponsor agreement with your school,it was so important for you and your community that you continued. I hope you raise a fantastic amount of money for a defibrillator that both your school and community can share. A potentially life saving piece of kit that every community should have. I’m super proud of you Mr Buttery. An excellent job with a very respectable time, giving the distance and super warm conditions. Congratulations.
