  The Railway Children 3 Peaks Challenge 2004

The Railway Children teamed up with Global Challenge UK to stage The Railway Children 3 Peaks Challenge in September 2004.

railway children 3 peaks challenge team The inaugural running of the Railway Children 3 peaks Challenge saw 50 teams of four people set the task of climbing Snowdon, Scafell Pike & Ben Nevis all within approximately 60 hours and travelling by train in between the mountains!

Global Challenge UK provided all of the communications support and control at each location as well as providing Event Managers travelling with the teams to ensure that the event ran smoothly.

The event had been many months in the planning and with the fantastic support of Network Rail, Virgin, EWS etc. it was a tremendous success raising in excess of 100,000 for The Railway Children, whose work is important helping runaway and abandoned children who live in and around the world's railway stations. Working through partner organisations, the charity offers shelter, healthcare, education, training, protection and, above all, friendship.

Team feedback included:

"The global Challenge staff were superb"

"Impeccable"

"They kept us safe"

"Superb! Always felt in control & confident with the support around"
