They walked from Brecon to Merthyr, via Pen-Y-Fan, then cycled to Cardiff Bay covering over 50 miles in 12 hours.

The team embarked on the Tour de Robert Price Duathlon, asking suppliers, customers, friends and family for sponsorship in donations to their chosen charities, Cancer Research Wales and Mind.

Setting off from Robert Price Brecon branch, the first point was Pen-Y-Fan, the highest peak in Southern Britain at 886m high. Then came the bike ride from Merthyr along Taff Trail, bound for finish in Cardiff Bay.

The team’s aim was to raise £2500, for the two nominated charities.

Marketing manager and challenge organiser, Molly Pike said: “The 50 mile route was a challenge for everyone who took part. We increased the difficulty this year but the team rose to the challenge, even the faces new to the group.

“Most importantly, testing ourselves to the limit has raised an incredible amount for two worthy charities, which makes all the training and the 12 hour ordeal worth every minute. I’m confident next year’s challenge will be just as testing, watch this space.”
