Property experts succeed in Trailtrekker Challenge

A team of surveyors from Yorkshire has succeeded in completing a grueling 100K hike across the Yorkshire Dales in 28 hours.

The , run by Oxfam, was taken on by and from , from Pullans and from Ryden.

The team aptly named ‘Plodding Mad’ came 42nd out of 86 teams that were successful in completing the Gold (100k) distance.

A total of 350 teams took part in the event with Oxfam hoping to raise around £1million which will help dramatically with the crisis in Syria where over 1 million refugees have fled the ongoing violence.

2013 is the fifth year of the Trailtrekker Challenge being held in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Paul Beckett said:

’s difficult to say we enjoyed the challenge, but during some of the hardest parts we were spurred on by knowing we were helping to raise funds for Oxfam, undoubtedly a great cause.”

Chris Hartnell said:

“One hundred kilometers in 28 hours was really tough but I’m really proud of how well we did – to complete the event in the time we did is a fantastic personal achievement. We’re now looking forward to a well-earned rest!”
