The challenge

  • Take on the highest mountains in the UK
  • Be one of the first hikers of the day to take on Ben Nevis
  • Tackle Scafell Pike at night
  • Finish your challenge on Wales's infamous peak, Snowdon
  • Aim to summit all three peaks in 36hrs, including travel between peaks!

Brace yourself for a fast-paced and physically challenging adventure, as you take on the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales in 48 hours. Considered one of Britain’s toughest outdoor challenges, the National 3 Peaks Challenge takes in the dizzy heights of Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m).

Over the course of two days, you will trek around 26 miles and ascend to a total height of almost 3,000m. This is a serious and tough challenge which requires a good level of fitness, as well as plenty of grit and determination. Ultimately, however, your hard work will be rewarded with spectacular views and a huge sense of achievement.

Please Note: We run our National 3 peaks over a 48 Hour period. We have listened to recent criticism regarding the impact that 24 Hour National 3 Peak challenges were having on the local areas. By running this challenge over 48 Hours we are able to minimise this impact and to contribute more to local economies.

This was the toughest physical endurance event I have ever done, but in the end it was well worth it and so satisfying to complete. The guides and organisation were brilliant and kept everyone going with their humour and knowledge of the area. It is something I would highly recommend.

As tough as the challenge may be, we were lucky to have this opportunity.

The 3 Peaks Challenge is a tough weekend which will test not only your physical capabilities but also your mental toughness. The aches and pains will fade fast but the memories and sense of achievement will last forever.
