    Story

    18,000'...2,000 miles...5 mountains...2 smarts cars…1 goal...The smart 5 Peaks Challenge!
    On the 21st July, two military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) will set out to attempt the arduous 5 Peaks Challenge, a gruelling race against the clock in which they have to climb the highest mountain in every country of the UK & Ireland. They have just 48 hours to summit Carrauntoohill, Slieve Donard, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and finally Ben Nevis, a total of 17,367' and the equivalent of climbing to Everest Base Camp!
    Departing from the smart of Basingstoke dealership, the veterans have given themselves just 4 days to complete the entire 2,000 mile challenge and return home. Carrying all of the expedition equipment that they need, their car of choice for this epic adventure is a smart fortwo!
    Can this challenge be completed in what many regard as a ‘city car’? Everything they require will be carried in the car’s 260 litre boot space – rucksacks, clothing, food, water, communications and survival kit.
    Why?
    In 2014, three ex-soldiers suffering from PTSD joined the Max Adventure team on a 12k mile overland expedition to far-eastern Siberia. So successful was the trip in giving the soldiers their lives back that a new charitable organisation 'Driven to Extremes' was set up to support more veterans by taking them on challenging vehicle adventures.
    How?
    The combination of operating in a remote and challenging environment, having to work as a close-knit team and the support within, the relentless pace of travel, military banter, opportunities for leadership and constant laughs along the way, help the veterans more than we could have imagined.
    2,000 miles of driving and 5 mountains to climb during an intensive 80 hour period will bombard the veterans' senses with new and exciting experiences, helping push horrific memories to the back of their minds.
    We ask that you generously support this challenge and help more veterans that are suffering from PTSD.
