Duo completes Three Peaks challenge

A duo has successfully put their walking equipment to great use and completed the National Three Peaks - Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon - in memory of their mum.

Iain and Jez Blackburn told the Retford Times about their adventure, which they finished in less than 20 hours and without any sleep.

The challenge was a "rewarding" one for the brothers, who raised more than £11,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

They chose this charity as it helped their late mother Frances cope with the health problem.

Iain said it was a "good way to say goodbye".

"On the final leg we thought it was going to be tight and we were constantly battling the clock, wondering if we were going to do it," he added.

Iain and Jez's dad drove them and their walking equipment from peak to peak.

The target for anyone attempting the National Three Peaks Challenge is 24 hours and, according to its official website, provides ample opportunities for people to get lost on the way.
