A group of five members from the Lawrence Veterinary Centre came ninth out 49 teams at the Coniston challenge this weekend in the Lake District.

The tough challenge begins with a 3km kayak race around Coniston water, followed by a 314m uphill bike ride to the top of Carron Crag, and finally a hike from Coniston village up to Old Man Coniston peak at 803m high.

The team consisting of Richard Sanders, Ian Simpson-Eyre, Francisco Gomez, Louise Payton and Paige Wainwright managed it in just 5 hours, 25 minutes and 38 seconds and say that it pushed each of them to their absolute limits.

Their efforts have raised £3,622.75 for Guidedogs UK so far.
