Caitriona Wood, consumables manager from printMAX is gearing up to undertake the gruelling Three Peaks Challenge only a mere two months after successfully completing her first half marathon. During the Easter weekend, Caitriona will be undertaking the challenge, which involves climbing the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within a 24 hour period.
For both the Brighton Half Marathon and the Three Peaks Challenge, Caitriona is raising money for the charity, Cancer Research UK. Caitriona has predominantly run 10K races in the past but decided to raise the bar in 2011, as she explains:
“A friend encouraged me to consider doing the half marathon and now, having successfully completed that, I have an appetite for another adventure. I am really looking forward to doing my first Three Peaks Challenge in April. The training is going well, and completing the half marathon in February was a real boost and has spurred me on for this. It’s given me confidence to achieve this next challenge – which I know will be tough, but I also can’t wait to get started!”
Added Michael Bolton, managing director, printMAX, “We are all completely behind Cat and are 100% confident she will be able to complete the Three Peaks Challenge within the allotted 24 hours. She has trained very hard, having recently completed the half marathon in Brighton and so we all wish her the very best of luck in accomplishing this next challenge.”
