Book the Open Welsh Three Peaks Challenge

Events resuming in August

Our 2020 Welsh events will be resuming in August! Please see our coronavirus latest update for more details and frequently asked questions, and our coronavirus policy for adjustments to our events.

Each year, we run several Open Welsh Three Peaks events. These are open to all, and don't require a group to book — participants can optionally raise money for any charity, without a minimum fundraising obligation.

These organised events mountain leaders to guide you, transport from Chester, throughout the challenge and to Cardiff afterwards, and food and drink throughout.

£329 per person — individuals and groups of any size welcome

Kit & fitness requirements: this event requires walking boots, rather than trail shoes, and a fair level of fitness. The pace is easier going than the Yorkshire Three Peaks and National Three Peaks, and the distance is a bit less.


After meeting at 10am, times are approximate. This event follows a much slower pace than the National or Yorkshire events.
