What is it?
The Three Peaks Challenge is an exhilarating tour of the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales, where participants are required to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon within the space of twenty four hours. This allows for thirteen hours of hillwalking, as well as eleven hours of driving to your next destination, a carefully planned timescale that is challenging yet definitely achievable!

What is involved?
The Three Peaks Challenge involves challenging yourself to climb the 3 mountains of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis within 24 hours. There are three specific plans which participants can follow, including walking only during daylight, organising your walking time around traffic to have smooth travel transitions, and being able to do the challenge in order of difficulty. There is also an opportunity to complete the challenge over three days to complete a mountain a day, allowing more flexibility for families completing the trek together.
