As part of their training seven of the eight took part in The Three Peaks of Yorkshire which involved a 24 mile course (incorporating the three highest peaks in Yorkshire namely Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent).
After most of the group battled with personal demons, blisters and pulled muscles a most creditable time of 11 hours 15 minutes was attained finishing at 6.05pm.
On Saturday, June 7, most of those taking part in the challenge will be at the front of the Morrisons Store in Cromer training on various pieces of equipment.
