Three Peaks Challenge
Corporate Team Challenge:
24-25 June 2011
Classic Three Peaks with Team Challenges.
Not only will your team be competing to return the fastest total time of the Corporate Teams in order to win one of the coverted Corporate Cups, but your whole team, including your support team and drivers, will try to gain ribbons and points during a series of Team Challenges. Attempting these challenges is voluntary - but prizes will be given to the teams gaining most Corporate Team Points... See below for images from the 2009 event.
Note that the dates for this challenge are Friday 24th June and Saturday 25th June 2011. Teams are encouraged to travel to Fort William on the Thursday, stay for the evening entertainment on Saturday night - then travel home on Sunday.

Registration - Fort William
Before starting your Corporate Team Challenge, you and your team will need to register at Fort William. This can be either Thursday evening, or Friday morning. Please bring all members of your team, including drivers, as you will need to fill in the Contact/Medical forms. Here you will get the chance to talk to the organisers and ask any questions before the Event Safety Briefing.
Registration will be in a hotel conference room in Fort William, as will the Event Safety Briefing.
Event Safety Briefing
Shortly before the start of your Challenge, your Team Leader and Lead Driver will be required to attend an Event Safety Briefing in Fort William. This will be around midday on Friday, and will last for around 45 minutes. Remember to bring your Beacon Map & Guide Sets which have been posted to you, and your Event Information Pack which you will have been given at Registration.
The Event Safety Briefing will cover all aspects of the Challenge, including driving routes, walking routes, car parking, environmental issues, walking equipment and kit, weather, emergencies, and of course you will be able to ask any questions.
We will also issue each team with safety kit items including Emergency Group Shelter, VHF radio, compact cooker & fuel, team event bib, and your Sport Ident dibber (image left). These must be returned at the finish.
Teams will be given start times from 2pm, with 5 minute intervals between team starts. Teams will start from the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre, and this is just a short drive from Fort William.
The Corporate Team Challenge
The Corporate Team Challenge will include the same mountain challenge format as our other Three Peaks Challenges (see the Spring Stroller), however, it will also include a number of challenges for both the walkers and the support team. These challenges are voluntary, and teams may simply choose not to attempt them. The challenges will only take a few moments to complete, and if successful, the team will be awarded points.
The team collecting the most points will be awarded a prize at the finish. Any ties will be decided by the quicker time of the tied teams. The Corporate Cups will be awarded purely on an overall time basis.
