About this event

The National 3 Peaks Challenge is one of the most popular mountaineering challenges in the UK.

 The challenge is made up of climbing three of the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales – within 24 hours! The total walking distance of the National 3 Peaks Challenge is 23 miles (37km) with an ascent of 10,052 feet (3,064 metres).

The event is not for the faint hearted and requires both physical and mental strength, especially as you will be spending some time in the dark on at least one of the mountains.

  • 1 night accommodation in Fort William, with breakfast on Day 2
  • All transfers from pick up to drop off and in between
  • Mountain leaders and drivers
  • First Aid trained guides
  • Children with Cancer UK Technical t-shirt
  • Full support from Children with Cancer UK and Mountaineerin (event company)
