Intec (UK) Ltd Recruit The Best Men For The Job Five Recruiters from Intec (UK) Ltd - a Technical Recruitment Agency & Business – endured the grueling "Three Peaks Challenge" in the UK over the weekend of the 6-7th July 2013.


"The Three Peaks" involves walking the highest mountains within National Parks in England, Scotland and Wales within 24 hours:
  • Scafell Pike; 978 metres (3,209 ft)
  • Ben Navis; 1,344 metres (4,409 ft)
  • Snowdon; 1,085 metres (3,560 ft)
The total distance walked is estimated at 44 kilometres (27 miles) with a total ascent of 3,000 m (9,800 ft).
