Congratulations to Shelby Group Chairman Phil Taylor for completing a gruelling personal challenge. Phil was part of a team that undertook the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday 21st May. He climbed the three highest peaks in Yorkshire (Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough) and managed to complete this challenging 24-mile circuit in just over 10 hours. The total day’s climb was around 5,200 feet.
To say this walk was gruelling is putting it mildly! My knees have never experienced pain like it. I had to walk the last three miles backwards to counteract the excruciating pain! The Yorkshire Three Peaks is a challenge, however, I have always wanted to undertake and I am so proud to have crossed this off my bucket list. Well done to all of the members of our team for their amazing achievement and thank you all for your support – quite literally – on the day!
