Three go over-the-hill for Ty Hafan

Posted on

Elen Davies, Senior Account Manager for New Directions Pharmacy along with three other team members (team name ‘Over the Hill’) have bravely/stupidly agreed to complete the Welsh three peaks challenge to raise money for Ty Hafan.

This challenge involves walking up Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen-y-Fan (the highest peaks in North, Mid and South Wales) in one day.

Starting at 4am on Saturday 15th June, the trio will take on Snowdon, before driving down to the mighty Cadair Idris to tackle Pen-y-Fan with the aim of completing the challenge in under 15 hours.

Over the Hill will be walking a total distance of 20.35 miles and will make a total ascent of 9,397ft (2,864m).
