Port Talbot legal expert, Sam Hawking Property Lawyers, has been announced as the lead sponsor for Christ College Brecon’s epic Coronation Mountain Challenge.
The Coronation Mountain Challenge, which takes place on the King’s coronation May bank holiday weekend, is part of the school’s ambitious 2041 Mountain Challenge which launched last year.
It will be held annually up until 2041 which will mark the school’s 500th anniversary and aims to raise money year-on-year for the Christ College Brecon Foundation and Brecon Mountain Rescue.
The challenge invites competitors to take on one of three different hiking routes around the Brecon Beacons: a low level 10 mile, a high level 13 mile and a more challenging high level 23 mile route which covers some iconic peaks such as Pen y Fan, Corn Ddu and Fan y Big.
Last year, Sam Hawking, Principal at Sam Hawking Property Lawyers, completed the challenge with his whole family. He said: “Christ College Brecon held a fantastic inaugural event last year with the different routes catering for all abilities. My wife and 10-year-old daughter completed the 10 mile walk, my eldest daughter the 13 mile route and myself the 23 mile race, and we all had a fantastic day enjoying the stunning views of the Beacons.
“We are so pleased to be sponsoring the event for the second year and my family and I can’t wait to face the challenge again.”
Father and daughter Graham (70) and Alison Rees also completed the 10 mile low level route last year. Alison said: “The Mountain Challenge was great fun, following a pleasant route along the canal towpath with some beautiful scenery along on the way. Pupils cheered us on at the checkpoint giving us a boost to finish, completing in good time with a burger awaiting us at the end! It was a fantastic day out.”
