THANK YOU to our 18 adventurous supporters who joined us in the stunning Yorkshire Dales for our annual charity Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, sponsored by Schofield Sweeney.
Many congratulations to EVERYONE for getting up early, stepping out of their comfort zone to take part in this famous gruelling Yorkshire challenge and walking the 24.5 mile route, climbing 7027ft in the process.
This year we opened up this iconic challenge encouraging Bradford businesses to enter teams of 3 x colleagues of all abilities, to push their limits and walk 1, 2 or 3 of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks.
Throughout the day, there were many stories of courage and we would like to say how proud we are of everyone who took part and walked the extra mile, pushing their own limits to complete their personal challenge!
All walkers arrived back to base in Horton in Ribblesdale, supported by OIAM staff, volunteer Andrew Smith from NPS Group, Phil Lee and his great team of experienced KUTA Outdoors marshals whom we would like to say a big thank you!!
Congratulations to Chris Feather from Naylor Wintersgill completing this year’s Y3P Tribe challenge in an impressive 8 hours 9 minutes and everyone completing within 10 hours 48 minutes, which is a OIAM record!
The day’s achievements were rewarded with a celebratory barbeque, cooked by our friends and Head Chef’s Keith and Ian Taylor from the Bingley Bantams. Certificates were awarded to everyone who took part in this year’s Y3P Challenge and stories were exchanged as the sun shone brightly on our Yorkshire 3 Peaks Tribe 2021champions!
What they said about the experience…………..
“Schofield Sweeney were very pleased to sponsor the event for a charity with which we have a long association and which does such valuable work in educating young people in Bradford. My colleague John Feaster and I were the last to finish the complete walk, but it was a great day, being John’s first 3 Peaks and my second for OIAM. There was a real sense of achievement in covering those 24.5 miles in support of OIAM. James Staton, Partner – Schofield Sweeney
