Colleagues, friends and family from across the SevernNet Area are once again getting together in The Black Peak Challenge. The last event raised £12,500 for charitable causes, and was supported by a number of local businesses.

If you’re interested in getting involved check out the information here, download the poster here or email Phil Radford at philip.radford@bristolport.co.uk

Those who have taken part in this challenge before have said that it was the best thing that they did all year. We need to book the breakfast and mountain rescue, so do join in as soon as you can.

Family and friends are encouraged, (15 years and over.)

 

The shorter route (11 miles climbing to 720 meters) is stunning and tough but achievable. (See below)  The longer route (18 miles reaching the highest point in the Black Mountain 811 meters) is only for the very fit and is a tough challenge. You can decide on the day which you are taking on.

 

You can travel up on the day, (meet at SAH car park to lift share) or stay in the campsite, or in one of the great pubs.

 

We are hoping to raise funds for the desperate people of East Africa by supporting the Disasters Emergency Committee. (Although local youth organisations are encouraged to use the event to raise money for their clubs also.)

 

All participants amazingly raised over the target £100 last time, (We raised an astounding £12,500 in total.) This time we have made it even easier to join in, lowering the target per person to £50!

 

So a great day out is on offer; amazing views, great bacon breakfast and great welsh pub at the end, not to mention doing something really important and rewarding.

 

Thanks go to the Bristol Port Company who have once again donated funds to get this up and running and Southmead Scouts for their expertise and support.

 

See you on the mountain! Phil
