5 Peaks Challenge

Boultons Bus on The Burway

Thursday 25th July saw over 40 Shropshire Runners set off a a repeat of the legendary 1997 Five Peaks Challenge, the aim then, as it is now is to raise thousands of pounds for The Hope House Children's Hospice, In there attempt to raise much needed funds all the runners will have to scale the highest peaks in Wales, England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Eire. The Party left Shropshire this evening on one of Mike Boultons coaches heading for Wales, the running started at 8:00pm from Pen-y-Pass car park, a quick blast up and down Snowdon then it was back on the coach for the next summit of Scafell early in the hours of Friday morning. The last news I had at 10:40 was everyone was off the hill and safely on the way up north.
