Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England standing at 978m is the second peak and finally the challengers take on the highest mountain in Wales: Snowdon, standing at 1,085m.

KYB UK’s Business Manager, Stevie Moore, said “It seemed like a good idea when it was first suggested that we should take part, now all we have to do is get fit! I am sure it will be hard work, but it is in a very good cause and I’m confident that we will complete it and raise much needed funds for BEN.”
BEN’s Events Manager, Kelly Neal, commented “We are always excited when people go above and beyond to raise money for BEN and KYB are doing just this. We wish them all the best and will be supporting them all the way.”
