The 3 Peaks 24hr Challenge


The Challenge

The 3 Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, within 24 hours.

We will climb each peak in turn, and be driven from the foot of one mountain to the next. The 3 peaks are:

The total walking distance is estimated at 26 miles (42km) and the total ascent is over 3,000 metres (9,800ft).

We will meet at a central location (to be confirmed) and travel via mini bus to our starting point Ben Nevis. Once complete the next stop will be Scafell Pike followed by the final hike at Snowdon.

On completion of the 3 Peaks Challenge at Snowdon there will be a glass of bubbly and medal waiting for you.

Why is there a £200 minimum fundraising pledge?
As for any charity, organising these events costs money. The £20 registration fee doesn’t cover all the costs of putting on a supported hiking event of this scale, so we have to set a minimum fundraising pledge.
This ensures the costs of the event are covered so the money fundraised is spent on our vital services to support members of the UK construction industry.
