Hikers to become bikers and runners in fresh charity challenge
Bookmark and Share
Two men who hiked over ten UK mountains for charity this year will swap men's walking boots for cycling gear and men's running shoes in 2010 as they take on their next quest.

Darren Edwards and Bryn Posey climbed more than the equivalent height of Everest while raising over £4,000 split between four different good causes this year, Grough reports.

Now the pair will raise more funds taking on a 545-mile bike ride across Britain - plus three marathon-length runs - in the space of eight or nine days.

Their 2009 mountain odyssey reached the summits of Ben Nevis, Ben Macdui, Ben Lomond, Skiddaw, Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, the Old Man of Coniston, Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen y Fan as they traversed Scotland, England and Wales.

Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon - the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales respectively - are often climbed in mid-summer during a 24-hour period as part of the national three peaks challenge, with many undertaking this for charity.
