PINNACLE MAN AT PEAK OF FITNESS FOR CHARITY CLIMB
Heath Freeman, managing director of leading crewing firm Pinnacle Crew, is more than living up to his company’s name this summer. He is taking part in a charity fundraising triathlon that includes climbing to the 1,085-metre high peak of Mount Snowdon.
As part of a two-man team, Freeman aims to raise money in August for Pinnacle’s adopted charity – Naomi House Children’s Hospice – by first swimming the 12-miles length of Lake Windermere, then cycling 180 miles from the Lake District to Mt Snowdon. The final element will be the climb to the pinnacle of the mountain.
Freeman, who was part of a relay team that swam the Channel in the fastest time in 2009, is now training for his new challenge. As he says:
“The training is constant, tireless and ongoing. It includes a rigorous schedule of swimming in the Thames every morning, and cycling every evening. I will soon be putting on the walking boots to start hiking as part of getting fit for the Mount Snowdon climb.”
