Trekfast Challenge 2015

Club President Phil Ham, his partner Maria Houlihan, Robert & Teresa Duff recently completed the 2015 Trekfast Challenge on the Brecon Beacons. The challenge started off as a gruelling 29 miles in 12 hours, however, high winds on Corn-Du meant that they had to take a detour, extending the route to 32.5 miles.
