Three vets and one veterinary nurse from Carmarthen Veterinary Centre have pledged to take on the ThunderWalk challenge – a 54 mile trek across the highest peaks in the Brecon Beacons and South Wales in only 24 hours.
Three vets and one veterinary nurse from Carmarthen Veterinary Centre in Llysonnen Road, Carmarthen, have pledged to take on the 2012 ThunderWalk challenge.
The event consists 54 miles of walking to be completed within 24 hours in the Brecon Beacons National Park, during the weekend of May 12-13, 2012.
This team-based endurance challenge will see the fearless four tackle some of the best walking trails the UK has to offer, crossing the highest peaks in the Brecon Beacons and South Wales:
- Pen y Fan (886m),
- Corn Du (873m),
- Cribyn (795m); and
- Fan y Big (719m)
The team, calling themselves Carmarthen Supavets, aim to raise at least £1,800 sponsorship for the event, the proceeds of which will go to The Cinnamon Trust – a registered charity which helps sick and elderly people to care for their pets and which provides loving homes for those pets on the death of the owner.
The team are already training hard for this gruelling event and are already tackling 5 hour walks on the Black Mountain and are putting lots of time in at the gym. In the weeks leading up to the event, they will gradually increase the distance walked and choose more challenging terrain.
