A man from Fulham is part of a team which will try to complete a unique challenge for charities including one set up by Irish singer Ronan Keating.
Marks & Spencer director of menswear Scott Fyfe is a member of a 17-man team taking part in the Five Peaks Challenge, which will see the team attempt to scale the highest peaks in Ireland, Norther Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England in seven days.
As if that’s not tough enough, the M&S team will be cycling nearly 1,000 miles between the peaks as part of the challenge.
They will raise money for Prostate Cancer UK and the Marie Keating Foundation - a charity set up by the Boyzone singer in memory of his mother.
The team will average 123 miles cycling per day and ascend 17,000ft while riding, the equivalent height of Everest’s half-way point.
Scott said: “As far as I know, this challenge has never before been completed, so there’s certainly some nervous excitement.
“The distance we have to cover each day, both on bike and while trekking, is gruelling, and will mean very early starts and late finishes.
“To put it into perspective, Tour de France athletes average 99 miles cycling a day, we will be averaging 123 miles on top of the treks up each peak.”
The challenge begins on June 7 and will see the team take on Carrauntoohil (Ireland), Slieve Donard (Northern Ireland), Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (England) and Snowdon (Wales).
