Three Peaks Challenge
When: Various dates throughout the year
Where: Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon
Minimum sponsorship: £650
Registration fee: £99
This is one of the best UK challenges out there! The challenge is to climb 3 of Britain's highest mountains, one after the other, within 24 hours...
Starting on Saturday morning in Scotland, you will tackle the highest of your 3 peaks first as you ascend Ben Nevis (1344m) the highest mountain in the UK. At the summit take the opportunity to soak up the breathtaking views of the Scottish Highlands before heading back down to the minibus and starting the journey across the border and on to the Lake District.
Once in the Lakes you will head for Scafell Pike (978m), the highest mountain in England. To add to the challenge you will be climbing this one in the dark (head torches required) - endeavouring to reach the summit before midnight.
Finally you will head off again to climb the highest Mountain in Wales; Snowdon (1085m). Once on the summit there will be time for a quick photo before making the descent.
