Here are some more pictures from the 3 Peaks. Unfortunately they are very biased towards the beginning and Ben Nevis, just simply through me not taking many photos later. Please send in more images if you want me to add them.
Most of you remember Ian running all three mountains. Below is a short video – pieced together from a sequence of photos – of his triumphant return down the longest and biggest – Ben Nevis.
And now on to the pictures.
