The Snowdonia Seven

Posted by on 8 July 2013 | 0 Comments

Colehill & Stour SNT members Steve, Joe and Matt have decided to put on their running shoes in order to raise some money for one of our local charities - Colehill and Wimborne Youth and Community Centre aka “The Reef”.

The team will be entering in an event called “The Snowdonia Seven”.

Unsurprisingly, the Snowdonia Seven takes competitors to seven of the peaks in the Snowdonia National Park, and will undoubtedly be one of the most enjoyable and challenging events that they have ever participated in.

The event has been held annually since 1974 and still embodies the original ethos of developing Fitness, Teamwork and Endurance. To complete the challenge, teams of four must travel 22 miles, over 7  peaks with a total ascent of almost 8000ft in under 10 hours, carrying the safety kit detailed in the rules. The teams training sessions are already well underway so keep your eyes open for them running in and around the Colehill and Stour area.

If you wish to sponsor the team then you can by going onto our webpage:
