Three Peaks Challenge

Tackle the three highest peaks across Scotland, England and Wales!
11-13 September 2020

Could you climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon in just over 24 hours, all in aid of St Peter’s Hospice? Starting at sunrise on Saturday, you’ll scale Ben Nevis and take in the spectacular views across the Scottish Highlands at 1344m before climbing Scafell Pike in the stunning Lake District that evening. Quickly cross into Wales and in the early hours of Sunday morning finish the trek by summiting Snowdon!  This iconic trek is physically and mentally challenging but incredibly rewarding. You’ll  experience the most breath-taking scenery of these three giants of the UK together as a team. And every single metre you climb will help local patients and their loved ones who need the care of the Hospice.

Itinerary

The challenge begins in Fort William at 5.30pm on Friday 11th September, where we’ll all meet for a briefing to prepare for the trek ahead.

Early on Saturday 12th September, we’ll have breakfast in the bunkhouse and transfer to Ben Nevis to start the challenge with the sunrise. This is the highest peak of the UK at 1244m and it’s a steep ascent but the views at the top on a clear day make it incredibly worthwhile. After making our way back down again, we’ll be transported on to the Lake District and arrive at Scafell Pike in the early evening ready for the next climb. After reaching the summit, we’ll come back down again in the dark so have a headtorch ready. Back in the bus, get as much sleep as you can to recharge during the trip into North Wales!

We’ll arrive at the foot of Mount Snowdon in the very early hours of Sunday 13th September and start climbing before the sunrise. Reach the summit of the final peak around 7am, and take it all in - what an incredible achievement! We’ll have a celebration breakfast all together before heading home.
