Members of Littleborough Amateur Boxing Club took on the National Three Peaks for a post-lockdown fitness challenge.
Fourteen coaches, boxers and gym members climbed the tallest mountains in Great Britain – Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in England and Ben Nevis in Scotland – throughout the summer.
Coach Mark Oldham said: “It was a really good atmosphere; everyone was helping each other up the peaks. We did this as a club to get people out and into normality again.
“Scafell was a hard climb; Snowdon was enjoyable, but Ben Nevis felt like it went on forever. We had a stunning view from the top though.”
The challenge also saw the club’s first use of its new minibus, donated to Littleborough ABC by transport mogul Graham Poole this summer.
Mark added: “It's an unbelievably generous thing to do, having a minibus gives us so many options as a club to be able to do things together. It’s been an uphill graft since coming back after the lockdown so it's a massive lift.”
