3 Lakes Challenge | Past Adventures

The 3 Lakes Challenge was something Andy came up with whilst completing the more famous 3 Peaks Challenge. The initial idea was to set up a challenge to raise money for Help For Heroes and hopefully inspire other divers and clubs to get involved.

The 3 Lakes Challenge was something Andy came up with whilst completing the more famous 3 Peaks Challenge. The initial idea was to set up a challenge to raise money for Help For Heroes and hopefully inspire other divers and clubs to get involved.

The challenge involved diving the highest loch in Scotland, Lake in England and llyn in Wales in under 24 hours. This included all the driving between locations and carrying all his own diving kit up whichever mountain the lake was strategically place upon.

In ordert to share the misery around Andy press ganged his friend Monty Halls to join him as the only man Andy knew fit and stupid enough to say yes.

They completed the challenge in November 2007, including getting somewhat navigationally challenge on the back roads of the Lake District, in 23 hours 10 minutes.

It was harder work than the boys initially thought but a number of teams have completed the challenge since then, raising money for Help For Heroes and other worthy charities. To see the Roll of Honour of these masochists click here (temporarily inactive).

Andy and Monty will be attempting to beat the record at the end of 2010 (Andy has not told Monty yet).
