March 2014 – ‘North Pennine Pain’
We like a challenge at +3A, especially when it’s to raise money for a worthwhile cause such as the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team. But this year’s Allendale Challenge really was a challenge! Recent, relentless downpours meant that the usual peat bogs were peat lakes and even the firmer ground was wet through. Nevertheless, we completed the 26 mile round trip in just over 10 hours and more importantly raised £950 for charity.
