National Three Peaks Challenge - 12th & 13th July 24 - COMPLETED!

Peaks and Trails are delighted to be putting on this particular event for those who have already registered their place with the North Devon Hospice (and for those who intend to) after agreeing to raise their minimum sponsorship of £500. 


The National Three Peaks Challenge is an event in which participants attempt to climb the highest mountains of England, Scotland and Wales within 24 hours, including driving time between the three mountains. 


Walkers climb each peak in turn, and are driven from the foot of one mountain to the next. 


The total walking distance is 23 miles (37km) and the total ascent is 3064 metres (10,052ft) - twice the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, over a similar total walking distance. The total driving distance is 462 miles.




One night accommodation in Fort William on Thursday 11th July. (Breakfast is not included).
