Harry Gration vowed that the 2018 challenge would be his last, but said: “I know I said I would never do it again, but Paul, Amy and Keeley have talked me into it and I’m excited to be able to take part in something so special for Sport Relief in 2020. I just hope I can get up those hills.”

Paul said: “I’m a little apprehensive because last time was hard enough, this looks like the toughest yet and I know how exhausted I was last time, but bring it on.”

Amy said: “I can’t believe we are doing this again! It really is going to be a Sport Relief challenge and a half, but I know we’ll have the support on route and that really means so much to us all.”

Keeley Donovan, who will head the support team added: “I’ll be there to keep the team going, give them moral support and make sure Harry drinks enough water! I’m just really pleased that I can be a part of it in 2020.”
