On the 20th June, Dyfed Powys Regional Coordinator Bethan James and School Community Police Officers PC Huw Freeman and PC Ruth Courtney will be taking on the WAAT4 Challenge.

The WAAT4 Challenge involves a 30km walk up Pen y Fan raising money for local charities. The team will be walking a challenging trail in the Brecon Beacons, taking in the stunning landscape and hoping they have the view at the top!! 

The WAAT4 Challenge is a navigation event in Wales’ Brecon Beacons National Park that sees teams from all over the UK take part every year. In 2014 more than 500 competitors took part over either 30km or 40km challenges which included South Wales’ highest peak - Pen y Fan. The event is organised by a small team of staff from Dyfed Powys Police, supported by members of the Brecon Mountain Rescue Team and Wales Air Ambulance.

Dyfed Powys Regional Coordinator Bethan James said: “Sometimes you need to challenge yourself, push your limits.... and what better way to do this than by raising money for some really good causes! We are doing this to raise awareness of the great work the two main charities are doing. It's going to be tough to say the least but a worthwhile one on a personal and team level.”
