A student is seeking to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks fell race this weekend for charity - and then take on Mont Blanc.
Climber and outdoors lover Amanda Seims will don her running tights
and take on the iconic challenge in the Yorkshire Dales on Saturday (April 24th), with her sponsorship money going to support the Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association, Grough reports.
Not content with this, she will then take her running shoes
to the Alps and compete in the Mont Blanc Marathon.
Ms Seims told Grough: "The Three Peaks fell race will be my toughest physical challenge so far," noting that she used to compete in cross-country running but has subsequently got out of condition while backpacking round the world.
Those keen on doing some fell running may wish to pick up some gear for it at their nearest Go Outdoors store.
The three peaks race has 999 listed entrants this year and will start off at 10:00 at Horton-in-Ribblesdale, ascending the peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-Y-Ghent along the way.
