GI Joes’ Welsh peaks challenge

Members of the G.I. Joe Personal Training fitness-family from Llanelli are taking on the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge in June.

This will involve walking up (and back down!) Cadair Idris, Snowdon and Pen y Fan in 12 hours or less, a total distance of 16 miles and making a total ascent of around 2000m in some of the most remote landscape in Wales.

The reason behind this incredible feat?

To raise much needed funds for the local charity, Week on The Street.

GI Joe’s aim is also to help people realise that being fit and healthy isn’t just based on completing marathons, going to the gym every day or being on a diet all your life. It’s about being imaginative, enjoying yourself and having a bit of fun!

There are people from all walks of life and fitness levels taking part, but leading them on this challenge are instructors Joe Williams and Gareth Evans, both of whom have already climbed Snowdon at the start of March in some very poor conditions.

I’m off for coffee and cake now; I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Good luck, guys!
