Andre Delgado takes on 14 Peaks at the end of June…

On June 30th 2018 I’m taking on the The Welsh 3000‘s 24h Challenge – 14 Peaks, 22 Miles, 14,000ft of ascent (hopefully) in one single day’s journey. Some call it “The King of ChallengesDoing the Welsh 3000s in a single day is one of Britain’s toughest 24 hour challenge walks requiring fitness, stamina and a certain kind of mindset: it makes the “Three Peaks” a mere training exercise for the boys.

I’ve set this as a personal challenge but thought that while training and preparing for it: why not help, even if just a little, a good local cause like Dove Cottage Day Hospice:
