Organising Your Own Welsh Three Peaks Challenge
We suggest taking part between May and October, bearing in mind that conditions vary greatly, and seasonal weather systems can extend winter conditions in the hills.
We recommend organising a group of between four and thirty walkers.
If you don't have a group of four or more, we recommend taking part in an organised event, such as the Open Welsh Three Peaks Challenge, which you can sign up to as an individual or a group.
Registration provides guidance on organising a safe and responsible challenge, as well as recording your challenge online, and promoting any fundraising. Certificates of completion are included.
Registration costs £6 per person, and is available online at threepeakschallenge.net.
Most Welsh Three Peaks Challenges start at Snowdon,
You may choose to travel to the start either by train or road. Local self-drive hire firms are available at both ends.
Snowdon can be accessed by train to Llandudno Junction or Bangor. From Llandudno, the Conwy Valley Line has a stop at Betws-Y-Coed, where buses are available to Snowdon.
Two dedicated drivers, who won't be walking with you, are really important to ensure your safety when travelling between the mountains.
If you're unable to recruit dedicated drivers, you could consider an organised challenge.
Make sure that each group member has all appropriate kit for taking part in the Challenge.
Write out a sensible training plan for your group, to ensure that everyone is at a suitable level of fitness when taking part.
This can also be used as an opportunity to try out new kit.
