Climb every mountain! #TeamYST is sharing their epic adventure to complete the Three Peaks Challenge

A team of YST staff and supporters are lacing up to take on the Three Peaks Challenge in June climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden. Follow the progress of #TeamYST in our live blog as they prepare for the demanding challenge ahead, whilst fundraising to support the crucial work that the Youth Sport Trust does.

Between 24 and 26 June, coinciding with the end of National School Sport Week, the team hope to raise vital funds to help more young people get active, improve their mental wellbeing, and bounce-back from the devastating impact of the pandemic.

Helen Pearce's Training Journey

16 May: My ‘why’ is YST! #TeamYST

8 May: "Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend & squeezed a bit of walking in??

This week I’ll be planning for a training weekend in Derbyshire - and trying to take the stairs in two each time!"

29 April: "Training walk Friday - Bardon Hill. At 912ft it’s Leicestershire’s highest ‘peak’ … only a few thousand more to the top of Ben Nevis!

Decided to walk with a bag of flour in my rucksack for extra weight 😂"

Chris Ellis' Training Journey

10 May: As a runner, I am finding it hard to get the motivation to do walking training. So plan B started last night, run 1 mile, walk 1 mile. This will be the basis of my training over next month or so!
