A PAIR of Stourbridge fitness fanatics are getting set for an epic 100m charity walk this weekend.

Simon Donovan, 28, and Alice Breitmeyer, 27, will be taking on TrekFest this Saturday (September 3) – seeing them trekking through some of the Peak District’s most challenging terrain in under 24 hours.

During the walk they will face the highest point in Derbyshire and the East Midlands, moorland plateau Kinder Scout, which stands at 2,087 feet.

The couple will use the event to raise money for Devon Air Ambulance, an organisation providing emergency medical services across the South West county.

Simon, British Military Fitness’ park manager at Wollescote’s Stevens Park, said: “Alice and I have taken on various fitness challenges before, but we want to take it to the next level with the TrekFest challenge and raise as much money as we can for the Devon Air Ambulance.

“Alice is originally from Devon and knows of the fantastic work they do in saving hundreds of lives each year and we also both spend a lot of our time walking in the Devonshire countryside so wanted to give something back. This challenge seemed the perfect way to do it.”

Alice, a Spanish teacher at Sandwell Academy, added: “We’ve both done fitness challenges in the past but TrekFest really will take it to the next level.

“I’ve been training three times a week at Simon’s sessions and it has really given me the confidence to tackle this challenge head on.

“We know we’ll be going into the event as best prepared as we can be.”
