The team at Graham & Co Estate Agents, based in Andover & Whitchurch, recently completed a gruelling 24 km day trek up Pen-y-Fan in the Breacon Beacons, following in the footsteps of highly trained SAS soldiers.
The team of 7 from Graham & Co, including directors Wayne Turpin and Guy Somerville and their team members Tristan Wheatley, Bex Cox, Dion McArthur, Ross Beeden and Nick King, have been training since last year to prepare for the Fan Dance race, which was originally set to happen in January 2021 but was postponed due to the pandemic.
Pen-y-Fan is the tallest peak in South Wales and stands at 886m (2906ft) above sea level, presenting a challenging trek through the Welsh landscape. Whilst the hike can be completed in many ways, the team at Graham & Co completed the most challenging route. According to the Fan Dance Challenge website, ‘The infamous march is the world’s oldest Special Forces test and is used as the first major indicator of whether a candidate has the physical and mental aptitude to complete the legendary Selection course.’
The team raised over £2000 for the foodbank. Thank you to everyone involved for this fantastic achievement and donation.
