Open National Three Peaks Challenge

The Open event is the perfect way for small groups and individuals to take part in the Challenge. On these dates, we group together individuals and small groups of a similar level of fitness, to complete the challenge together, with the help of our mountain guides and support staff.

On these Open events, we travel and walk in groups of about ten — made up of existing individuals and small groups of similar levels of fitness. Groups are led on each mountain by our guides. We follow the 24-hour target itinerary below, and most often we'll complete the challenge within 24-hours.

£369 per person, including a deposit of £74 required to reserve places
