National 3 Peaks Challenge



Registration fee: £75 Sponsorship: £775

Trek Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon

Mountain range


Push yourself to the limit in the UK’s toughest outdoor trek, the National 3 Peaks Challenge. You’ll conquer the three highest peaks in the UK – Scotland’s Ben Nevis, England’s Scafell Pike and Wales’ Snowdon.

There’ll be breath-taking views and an amazing sense of achievement. But it doesn’t come easily. You’ll be setting off at 5am, hiking through the dark of night, and trying to catch as much sleep as possible on the drive between peaks.

The National 3 Peak Challenge begins in Chester at 11am on Friday morning, and includes return travel from Chester to and between the peaks. Accommodation in Fort William on Friday night is also included. Please note that this is not a 24 hour challenge, and we expect to take around 30- 36 hours to complete the three peaks.
