My story

[p][b]The Challenge[/b][/p][p]The 6 Peak Challenge is the first ever attempt to hike up and paraglide down the infamous [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Three_Peaks_Challenge]National 3 Peaks[/url] and the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yorkshire_Three_Peaks]Yorkshire 3 Peaks[/url] in under 24 hours.[/p][p]Legendary within British mountaineering and hillwalking circles, these mountains will combine to test Alex in the toughest endurance challenge he has ever attempted. On paper it is possible, but there are many variables such as weather conditions, traffic and injuries, so no-one knows if the challenge can realistically be completed in the time limit.[/p][p]During the challenge, Alex will be flying with [url=http://www.niviuk.com]Niviuk[/url] equipment, purpose-made for lightweight mountain flying. He'll be supported by the smallest possible team, driving him between mountains, providing food, rehydration and safety assistance.[/p][p][b]The Pilot[/b][/p][p]Alex has been obsessed with the outdoors and aviation since he was a young child. Since learning to paraglide in 2004, he has flown all over the world in various competitions, challenges and adventures.[/p][p]Yorkshire born and bred, The Yorkshire 3 Peaks often become his playground on foot or by air.[/p][p]Alex is no ultramarathon runner, just a normal guy, so this challenge will truly test his endurance as he aims to maintain a safe physical and mental condition to launch from each summit.[/p][p]Find more information at: [url=http://www.6peaks.co.uk]www.6peaks.co.uk[/url][/p]
