The Open Welsh Three Peaks Challenge

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 include mountain leaders to guide you, transport from Chester and back, and between the mountains, 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 more relaxed pace than the National or Yorkshire events.
