So the crazy team that brought you the 3 Peaks Extreme challenges have re-grouped, re-formed, and re-focussed in 2019
Having previously conquered the 3 highest peaks in the UK, cycled between them and then continued their quest by riding from Mount Snowdon to Lands End, raising over £100,000 for a range of industry charities, this merry bunch have now committed to support the BALI Chalk Fund and the BALI GoLandscape initiative with their latest crusade.
The group will not only raise money for the BALI Chalk Fund charity, but will also raise awareness of the great work being done by BALI GoLandscape.
BALI Education Officer, Steve Ensell said “This team have a great track record in raising huge sums of money and invaluable awareness for their chosen causes, and we are delighted that the GoLandscape initiative is set to benefit this year, so that we can build on the critical work we have started, encouraging more talent into the landscape industry”.
The team were inspired to support the BALI chalk fund having learned about the GoLandscape enrichment programme that is being funded by the Chalk fund, with the intention of making landscape students “work ready” with LISS CSCS cards, and other skills certification.
The challenge consists of a 600 kilometre, 5 day, road ride, starting in at Myscough College near Preston on 15th September and finishing at Capel Manor in Enfield, visiting other land-based colleges on route so that the team can talk to students and kick start some masterclasses run by GoLandscape Ambassadors, designed to improve the student experience and providing state of the art information and knowledge.
There are currently still places available on the ride and team would love to see some fresh faces on this industry focussed challenge.

Seasoned challenger and BALI National Chairman, Matt O’Conner was one of the first to sign up this year, saying “BALI GoLandscape has gained real traction over the past 18 months, thanks in no small part to the support of the Chalk Fund, the trained ambassadors of which there is now over 70, have attended many school and college events around the country, raising awareness of the many and varied careers that the industry can provide”.
