WORLD RECORD: Croxley Green father attempts to scale 50 mountains in five days 

 Published on: 28th April 2022   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Croxley Green man is taking on the charity challenge of attempting to scale 50 UK Mountain Peaks in just five days next month.

Chris Garrow, along with nine friends, will take on the tough endurance challenge to raise money for three charities close to their hearts: Friends of Colnbrook, Rugby Against Cancer and Building Heroes.

The group are attempting to break a world record to take on the 50 UK Mountain peaks in the fastest ever time.

Speaking to CroxleyNews, Chris explained: “We are all training at the moment, every weekend we are up on some mountain in the UK. I am nervous but I’m really excited.”

Friends of Colnbrook is a cause that means a lot to Chris, as his seven-year-old son Finn attends Colnbrook School, a special needs school in Oxley. Rugby Against Cancer support anyone connected to rugby or their family suffering from cancer and Building Heroes support armed forces veterans into the construction industry.

Chris added: “I hope to raise as much money as possible for the charities, to build an outdoor sensory area at Colnbrook School so my son benefits directly.”

The brave group of walkers will set off on June 29, starting with Brecon Beacons, followed by Snowdonia, The Lake District and Glen Nevis.
