Three Peaks in 24 Hours Challenge

Our annual fundraising event is a true challenge of body and mind traversing the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales over a 24 hour period (including travel).

We begin our journey by climbing Ben Nevis at the crack of dawn, where the clock starts. After that it's a drive by mini-bus to Scafell Pike and then onto Snowden.

2024 will be our sixth event and is already looking to be the biggest yet! Take a look at the video and comments below to get a taste of the experience.


Who is welcome?

Everbody

We group people in teams of 4 - 6 depending on ability. All teams have their own experienced team leader who is responsible for getting the team up and down all mountains safely.

If you are concerned about being physically capable of doing it please let us know when completing the interest form below

What is the frequency?

Annually

We only do the fundraising event once a year (in summer time), however if you sign up the team leaders are often doing training days leading up to the big event to help you train and familiarise yourselves with the mountains.

How high are the mountains?

Nearly 3,500 Metres

In total, the cumulative height is 3,408 metres

  • Ben Nevis (Scotland) 1345m
  • Scafell Pike (England) 978m
  • Snowdon (Wales) 1085m

Interested in Joining Us?

You should be quite fit and active and capable of walking/hiking for long periods of time, the team leaders will try to aim for the below timings to allow the drivers to get between mountains within the 24 hour time slot.
  • Ben Nevis - 5 Hours
  • Scafell Pike - 3.5 Hours
  • Snowden - 4.5 Hours

A £100 deposit will ensure you are registered for the next event however there is an expectation that all people who register will raise an additional £400 for the charity.

The deposit paid by everyone ensures that there is a mini-bus and driver that will transport you between each mountain

We generally use 9 seater cars with a maximum of 7 people (including driver) to ensure that you are comfortable and can rest between destinations.

The £100 deposit will cover your overnight stay in Fort William the night before we set off to climb Ben Nevis.

Typically we all set off together from the Wirral the day before the ascent to Ben Nevis, the mini-bus will transport you there (setting off around midday) however if you need to stay in the Wirrall the night before you will need to pay for your own accommodation.
