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. This event will run at an easier pace than the Yorkshire and National challenge events.

These organised events include mountain leaders to guide you, transport from Chester and back, and between the mountains, and food and drink throughout.

On this itinerary we'll experience sunset while on Cadair Idris, and sunrise while on Snowdon, which can be spectacular.

£339 per person — including a deposit of £70 to secure a place

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.
