Topic - Why not do the 3 peaks challenge?

mountainmadness on 31 Oct 2012

There's a fundraising team where I work that have decided to do the 3 peaks challenge (3pc). I'm aware that this is a sensitive topic due to various factors. Could you please help me formulate an arguement against this activity. My thoughts so far are:

1) The 3pc places serious strain on each of the mountains due to the number taking part;
2) Many residents local to each mountain are getting thoroughly pissed off at minibuses driving around at god-knows-what hour of the night, with accompanying noise and disruption;
4) There are piles of litter left at each car park;
5) The eco footprint of this activity is huge given the mileage covered;
6) There are much better challenges that could be arranged.

I did the challenge in the mid 80's, before it was fashionable, and it was quite possibly the most boring activity I have done. The only challenge was sitting in a car for 30 hours (incl. getting to and from the start/finish).

So, have I missed any pointers here?

Thanks in advance as I'll be away from my desk for the day so will pick this up again tonight.
