Paul Smithson, Alzheimer’s Society Support Services Manager Bradford Area

1. Why did you decide to take part in the Vaisakhi Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge?

For the challenge, as a gauge of fitness, to meet a new group of people

2. How did you find the organisation of the Vaisakhi Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge?

I was a little confused about how the groups would run, where support would be parked, I understood an email would be sent out, but I did not get a copy.

3. What were your most memorable moments of the Challenge?

Seeing Ingleborough covered in snow then realising it was frozen hail! The company

4. Would you do it again?


5. Would you recommend it to your friends and relatives?


6. Have you got any message for Alzheimer’s Society?

7. Any other suggestions/criticisms/improvements?

Good event and much appreciated.

Not sure if this was sent out put if not given the weather I would suggest minimum kit requirements (waterproofs, whistle, hat ,gloves, back up food) and that people have a route of the walk or map.

*Note all participants were sent an email two weeks prior to the challenge which gave them a comprehensive list of equipment/clothing required.  In addition to this an e-version of the course map was sent as well as an in-depth route description published by the BNF.

On the day itself at the Gurudwara Sahib all participants were provided with a copy of a map of the course and a route description adapted from the Guardian.
