About this event:
Our team from Quantum Marine Engineering here in Ft. Lauderdale, FL will be participating in a fundraising activity to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. The National Three Peaks Challenge is an endurance event held in Great Britain in which participants attempt to climb the highest mountains of Scotland, England and Wales all within 24 continuous hours. The total distance walked is approximately 44 km (27 mi), with a total ascent of 9,800 feet (3,000 m). Walkers climb each peak in turn, and are driven from the foot of one mountain to the next. The three peaks are:
• Ben Nevis (1,344 metres, 4,409 ft), the highest mountain in Scotland
• Scafell Pike (978 m, 3,209 ft), the highest mountain in England
• Snowdon (1,085 m, 3,560 ft), the highest mountain in Wales
The total driving route distance is 725km (450 miles), the timing and logistics of which is part of the challenge and can “make or break” the 24 hour completion goal!
All proceeds to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.
