A South Norfolk fitness trainer and three of his clients overcame mishaps and obstacles to complete the Three Peaks challenge.
Banham-based personal trainer, Jamie-lee Weller, 34, from New Buckenham, led the JW Core Nutrifit team challenge to climb Scotland's Ben Nevis, England's Scafell Pike and Wales' Mount Snowdon, raising money for wildlife charity, The Marine Conservation Society.
Preparations were not smooth sailing, member Emma Aldous, 23, from Diss, severely sprained her ankle six weeks before the event and together with Jamie-lee, worked carefully to rehabilitate.
But despite also having their rental car driven into just outside Glen Co and a navigational hiccup on Ben Nevis, the team, also consisting of Raimo Ala-Korpi, 49, of Redgrave, and William Anderson, 49, from Scole, completed the adventure.
Mr Weller said: "It's been a personal ambition for many years to do the Three Peak Challenge. Combining this dream with my interest in marine conservation is an amazing feeling."
