Camozzi reaches peak perfomance

09 July, 2019

A team of 8 intrepid Camozzi Automation staff recently completed the gruelling National Three Peaks Challenge, raising, at the time of writing, in excess of £3000 for charity in the process.


Not for the faint hearted, the arduous event challenges participants to climb the highest peaks of England, Scotland and Wales – all within 14 hours, allowing 10 hours driving time in between. The team conquered Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis and Snowdon, with a total ascent of over 3000 metres (over 10,000 ft) and walking distance of 26 miles. The challenge was completed with approximately 2 minutes to spare.

The team’s impressive feat followed months of careful preparation and endurance fitness planning, including training climbs in Shropshire and the Peak District.

Camozzi Automation’s managing director, Adrian Farnham, commented: “Cramming all that activity into the space of 24 hours was really quite surreal, but adrenaline and the drive to succeed kick in and enable you to achieve what on paper looks pretty daunting. The buzz of the day and the encouragement from your team mates really keeps morale at a high and helps you forget factors like sleep deprivation, as does the fact that you’ve achieving something that only a very small percentage of the population ever will.”

The Camozzi team was fundraising for a trio of worthwhile charities: Children with Cancer UK, Alzheimer’s Society and Crohn’s in Childhood Research Association (CICRA), all causes which the team members feel passionately about.

Camozzi’s Virgin Money Giving page (https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/CamozziAutomation) is set to remain open until the end of July.
