As Andrew Page looks forward to taking on the Three Peaks Challenge this June we caught up with him to find out what’s keeping him going as he prepares summit Mount Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis.
“I chose to take on the Three Peaks Challenge as it is one of the most arduous and challenging tasks to do in the UK. I’m really looking forward to it and to keep my motivation going I have set myself weekly training goals combined with a healthy diet to make sure I’m ready come June!
“I have some experience in this sort of challenge and I took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks a few years ago but the weather went against us back then as a steady flow of rain meant the mountain sides were shrouded in mist so I’m looking forward to actually seeing some spectacular views of the highlands this time around!
“My experience of taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks mean I have some idea of what to expect but if taking it on this sort of challenge for the first time I would say it’s important to start your training early and to be committed to it. A personal tip of mine would be to start drinking at least one litre of water a day to keep your body properly hydrated.
“Choosing to support World Child Cancer was an easy decision as it’s so amazing to see what just a few pounds can do in terms of healthcare, education and basic provisions. I’m hoping by going the ‘extra mile’ we can help to do more great things for children and their families right across the globe.”
