Three Peaks Challenge

The Three Peaks Challenge is our most popular adventure. For over seven years now we have planned and co-ordinated three peaks challenge events for groups, individuals, corporate teams, major charities and even other Three Peaks Challenge providers. To date our three peaks challenge events have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for worthy causes. We are extremely proud of our success in helping teams achieve their aims - whether that be the three peaks challenge in 24 hours, or simply getting to the finish.

The Three Peaks Challenge involves consecutively climbing the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales. This can be done over 24 hours or in three days. It's a common misconception that the Three Peaks Challenge involves the three highest peaks in Britain; Over one hundred peaks in Scotland are higher than Scafell Pike, and 56 are higher than Snowdon!

We also offer a fully supported Yorkshire Three Peaks event for individuals and groups. Makes great training for the national three peaks!

Mountain And Glen would be delighted to organise your 2013 three peaks challenge, and add you to the list of our many satisfied three peaks challenge finishers!

Three Peaks Challenges & Adventures

The 24 Hour Challenge

The Mountain and Glen Three Peaks Challenge is a tough test of endurance by anyone's standards! Taking in the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales, the challenge is to complete all three within 24 hours. The Three Peaks Challenge. Normally starts in Fort William, the first challenge being the brooding mass of Ben Nevis. On completion we head directly to the Lake District for phase two, Scafell Pike. Again, on completion we head off for our final leg of the three peaks challenge, up the steep slopes of Snowdon in Wales. Sleeping and eating are attempted in the vehicle between mountains!

The three peaks 24 hour challenge is a great team-building event for corporate teams, and a great fundraiser for charities. We can put together a bespoke Three Peaks Challenge to meet your exact requirements; we now offer a VIP Three Peaks or see our Adventures page for details of our "Open Three Peaks Challenge" dates when you can join other adventure-minded individuals.

Open Three Peaks Challenge

Want to complete the Three Peaks Challenge in 2013 but don't have a team? Running on selected dates, the Open Three Peaks Challenge is perfect for individuals or smaller groups to join together and complete the Three Peaks Challenge.

We recommend that you aim to get to Fort William on the Friday night, to allow a bit of R and R before your three peaks challenge starts! All participants should be at the start in Fort William for 1000hrs on the Saturday of the event. You will be allocated to a team based on the fitness information you will have provided. After a safety brief we set off up the Pony Track to the summit of Ben Nevis and back to the vehicles for the 6hr drive to Wasdale Head for the ascent of Scafell Pike. Breakfast rolls and hot drinks await us at the base before embarking on the vehicles again for the 4.5 hour drive to Pen y Pass. Snowdon is the final leg of the three peaks challenge, and is ascended/descended via the Pyg Track. Your transport will take you back to Llanberis on completion of your three peaks challenge. Please note that teams will be expected to walk/finish together; this means that we can't absolutely guarantee you will achieve a sub-24 hour time for the three peaks challenge.
