In 2012, a team of 40 brave men and women, led by Outward Bound’s Chairman, HRH The Duke of York, abseiled over 787ft down the side of The Shard, making history and raising a transformational £2.8m in funds for The Outward Bound Trust and The Royal Marines Charitable Trust.

Following the unprecedented success of this outstanding event, the supporters of both organisations were keen to know - what’s next? We knew if we were to follow in these prestigious footsteps, we had to make our next challenge even greater than the last; hence the City Three Peaks challenge was born.
