20th anniversary of Three Peaks by Rail Challenge

A big congratulations to everyone who took part in the Three Peaks by Rail Challenge over the weekend – an incredible achievement involving climbing Mount Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis in 72 hours!

We’re proud to be sponsoring the challenge in its 20th year, helping to raise money for the Railway Children charity which provides protection and opportunities for vulnerable children worldwide.

For the special anniversary, it was only fitting that the 70000 'Britannia' had the job of taking participants on the first leg of the journey – much to the surprise of many participants.

Whether tackling one peak or the full three, everyone who took part, including our Porterbrook teams, was a true inspiration – providing support and cheering each other on, helping to push through despite heat, tiredness and sore legs! Our CEO Mary was also delighted to board the train on Saturday to hand out some of the team awards and say congratulations to those who participated.

Well done to everyone involved!
