Ian MercerParticipant and organizer of the extreme challenge,

Name: Ian Mercer 43 married with 2 children,

I have done 2 London Marathons, and 3  Yorkshire 3 peaks races, and lots of other fell and road races, but not much cycling experience hopefully John will help me through that part of the challenge.


We are raising money for coronary care who have helped family and friends out so much, this is great way to repay them for there excellent work and care. We have set a very tough challenge to hopefully grab peoples interest and get good support to help all the people worse off than ourselves.

John StatterName: John Statter

Age 47; 48 when we attempt this madness.
Married with 6 year old son.

I practiced and taught Korean martial of Taekwondo for 25 years but gave this up almost three years ago.
Since then I have done a lot of cycling including two 'Coast to Coast' rides (Only 150 miles) and thought I needed a tougher challenge.

Ian managed to twist my arm and persuaded me to agree to this 3 peaks challenge; a decision I might live to regret!!

Not too keen on running up mountains but I suppose it has to be done.
