Robyn’s Three Peak Challenge

On 16th June, Oxton resident Robyn Farrar will be embarking on an attempt on the Three Peaks Challenge.

The challenge consists of climbing the three tallest mountains in Scotland, England & Wales, all within 24 hours. Robyn’s challenge will start with Ben Nevis, which is 4408 feet tall and is a 10 mile walk, taking around 5-6 hours. This is then followed by Scafell Pike which is 3210 feet tall, 5 miles to walk and around 4 hours to complete. Finally Snowdon which is 3560 feet, 10 miles to walk and takes around 4 hours, where Robyn hopes to cross the finish line within the 24 hour time limit.

You may have seen Robyn around and about the village, mainly as she’s been madly training by running up and down Windmill Hill!

Robyn is raising money in aid of MACS (a small charity for children born with no eyes or non functioning eyes – as an Optometrist this is a cause very close to her heart) and a children’s cancer charity, Clic Sargent.

If you are able to sponsor Robyn, the address is:

Good luck Robyn!

  1. Have put some money in your online pot. Anyone who can run up Windmill Hill without collapsing into a hedge en route has my admiration.

  2. We did it! It was harder than any of us could have possibly imagined – the sleep deprivation was immense. Scarfell in pitch black, zero visibility and driving rain was a highlight…. Total of 10,000feet climbed, 25 miles in just one day. Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored us and to anyone who has promised but not yet had chance the giving page is closing this week so please do go on – Thank you again, Robyn x
