Call it the worst best worst idea ever!

14th June 2016

On June 21st, URC members Amie Booth and Mark Wood will be taking off from the base of Mount Snowdon (UK) and over the next 8 days, cover 400+ miles on their way to mount Scafell Pike (Wales) and mount Ben Nevis (Scotland), basically attempting to run the 3 Peaks Challenge entirely on foot!

Why you ask? Well, as Mark says “Mainly, because we’re not too bright.”  But more importantly, they’re using the run as a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity.

That said, they could use your help to make this run a success.  If you’d like to run a mile or two with them, know of places we can crash for a few hours (if you are in UK), want to help spread the word, or can help out financially at their donation site  they’d really appreciate it.
