VIDEO: Furze Platt on Yorkshire Three Peaks – 18 July 2013
As everyone knows, the weekend before last saw pure skill combined with sheer determination, as an immense physical challenge was overcome. Despite the soaring temperatures, still the ultimate goal was achieved, creating a grand sense of jubilation.
I write, of course, about my Sixth Form’s efforts on the Yorkshire Three Peaks. Having trained since the start of the year, it all came down to the weekend of 5 to 7 July (which, coincidentally, I might add, was the same weekend Andy Murray won the Wimbledon Championships).
In just a few days’ time, I’ll be bringing you, dear readers, the full story from the 40km hike with photography, but until then enjoy this brand-new video, documenting our entire expedition.
(Sorry: it’s a bit of a long one – about ten minutes in total – but, trust me, you’ll want to watch it for the ending…)
