Timing of the Welsh 3000s
Given the level of difficulty of the Welsh 3000s, it is not typically seen as so
much of a walking challenge as, say, the National Three Peaks. It is a large set
up from this, in a similar way to stepping up from the Yorkshire Three Peaks, to
the National version.
Depending on the level of the walkers, the Welsh 3000s can certainly be attempted
in 24 hours, but many more experienced climbers would attempt it in 12 - given the
close positioning of the peaks this is perfectly possible for an able hill runner,
and perhaps for a fast hill walker.
Given the more unique nature of the Welsh 3000s the time limit is really down to
the individual walker, as is the timing between peaks. Breaks can be taken along
the route, and with appropriate organisation the walker could meet with a support
vehicle en route to pick up food and drink, drop off equipment and pick up changes
