Welsh Three Peaks Challenge

The Welsh Three Peaks Challenge, lesser known than the National or Yorkshire Challenges, takes in the three peaks of Wales: Snowdon in the North, Cadair Idris in mid-Wales, and Pen y Fan in the South.

The Welsh Three Peaks includes a total walking distance of 17 miles (27.4km) and an ascent of 2334 metres (7657ft), usually in less than 24-hours. That's more ascent than the Yorkshire Three Peaks over a shorter walking distance.

How to take part in the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge?

To take part, you can either join an organised event, providing transport, mountain leaders and food and drink, or arrange your own challenge.
