On 7th June, they completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, walking a total of 39.2km (24.5 miles) in a fantastic 10 hours! They started by hiking Pen-y-Ghent (694m, then made their way to the highest peak in the challenge - Whernside (729m), before climbing the last peak in the challenge, Ingleborough (732m).
The Omnian’s second challenge was walking the whole of the South Downs Way (100 miles). This was completed in four legs across four days in July. The first leg started at Eastbourne and finished at Ditchling Beacon (30 miles). The second leg started at Ditchling Beacon and finished at Amberly (28 miles), the third leg was from Amberly to Queen Elizabeth Country Park (24 miles), and the last leg was completed in reverse, from Winchester to Queen Elizabeth Country Park (20 miles) where they celebrated the end of the challenge with a team barbeque.
Lastly, the team took on the Copper Route of the Peak District, including the famous Curber Edge. They walked 30km (18 miles) in 7.5 hours with a total of 168,000 steps. They saw some fantastic views along the way and even got to enjoy a pint at the end of their trek.
One of Omnia’s Principal Geo-Environmental Consultants, Will Bennet has said “ I was fortunate enough to be able to take part in all 3 of the walking challenges. It was great to get to spend 3 days enjoying 3 very different landscapes across the country, and raising money for some great causes at the same time!”
