Team Summit Mentality at Snowdon24 Endurance Race

On the weekend of 9 and 10 July, Joe, who works in our Underwriting team, and two of his good friends competed in the inaugural Snowdon24 endurance trail race, a 24-hour ultramarathon, representing Team Summit Mentality in their maiden competitive endurance event.

The three runners managed to summit Yr Wyddfa nine times as a team within the 24-hour window, placing first in the teams-of-three category and sixth overall out of 186 competitors, all whilst raising over £3,000 for their chosen charities, Prostate Cancer UK and Sport in Mind.

Reflecting on the experience, Joe said: “I learnt so much about my body and mind over the 24-hour period, which included a solo summit of England & Wales’ highest peak in total darkness at midnight on the Sunday – by far the toughest challenge I have ever undertaken! Running such a distance on virtually no sleep in near-total darkness has a way of forcing you to enter the darkest depths of your mind and I feel so much stronger now, having completed the challenge.

A huge thanks to our behind-the-scenes race team and documentary makers for all their hard work in realising my, and my friends’, crazy dream – we couldn’t have done it without you, and we can’t wait to see how the documentary turns out.

So excited to see what the future holds for Summit Mentality – watch this space!”

The team plan to take on popular Danish staged trail marathon Etapeløb Thy Trail Race in November of this year.
