3 peaks - the 3 peaks challenge
Thinking of doing the 3 peaks challenge ?
The national 3 peaks challenge, sometimes referred to simply as the 3 peaks, involves visiting the summit of Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales - climbing 2,926 metres (nearly 10,000 feet) and walking 36 km (over 22 miles) in the process! It has become popular to try to complete the 3 peaks within 24 hours but there's no 'official' timescale or route for this challenge.
The national 3 peaks challenge has become the UK's most popular mountain challenge event with thousands of people undertaking the challenge every year. The 3 peaks makes an ideal charity fund raising event because it captures the public's imagination and is indeed a challenge - you'll have earned every penny you raise! Take a look at the 'Raising funds for charity' page to see how we can help your 3 peaks fund raising event.
The 3 peaks also makes an excellent team building experience and many companies combine this team building event with raising funds for their chosen charity.
The 3 peaks challenge tests not only the fitness but also the physical and mental toughness of the participants as it involves challenging walking, prolonged physical discomfort and sleep deprivation! It will however provide some amazing memories that will last you a lifetime!
