Breast Cancer Campaign is calling on all fundraisers with a passion for the great outdoors to put on their hiking boots and set themselves a challenge for 2012 by signing up to its popular Three Peaks Challenge.

Running from the July 13 to 15, the Three Peaks sees participants attempt to scale the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in just 24 hours to help the charity continue to beat breast cancer.

Renowned for being one of the toughest challenges in the UK, the Three Peaks is perfect for anyone looking for a new physical test. Participants will hike approximately 24 miles and climb and descend over 10,000 feet in just 24 hours.

It’s a challenge of endurance, adventure and most of all team work, as everyone pulls together to tackle the intense slopes of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon, ascending 3000 metres and sometimes even hiking in the dark.

Supporters need to sign up before April to take part and allow enough time to prepare, train and fundraise for the leading breast cancer charity.

Kelly Walton of Breast Cancer Campaign said: “Whether you’ve resolved to get fit, lose weight or be more adventurous in 2012, this could be the perfect challenge to help you achieve your New Year goals. Not only will participants have the experience of a lifetime, they’ll also be helping the charity continue funding vital breast cancer research.”
