Three Peaks Challenge 2011

Want to enter your team into a Three Peaks Challenge event in 2011, but don't want to have to raise some £5000 for a charity you may have no real interest in? Want to raise funds for your own charity or good cause? Or just want to attempt the challenge at the same time as a number of other teams, with full safety support in place?


The Open Challenge Series 2011 includes 3 Open Three Peaks Challenge events, all starting at Fort William for Ben Nevis, and finishing in Llanberis for Snowdon. Teams must consist of 4-8 walkers (depending upon event) and 2 drivers.

Teams will organise their own transport, accommodation and food for the challenge, and will be aiming for a true 24 hour challenge attempt, starting at 5 minute intervals from the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre.

You can secure your team place online now from £149 deposit, with the balance payable 28 days before your challenge. Your team entry fee includes:

  • Beacon Map / Guide Set

Will it be sunny? Will we need our waterproofs? Can we wear trainers?

Just some of the questions I get asked regarding the possible weather conditions on the Ben Nevis summit in summer. Well, the summit is likely to be 15 degrees colder than the Glen Nevis car park, and conditions can change very quickly on the summit. You should be prepared for pretty hostile conditions, but hopefully may get some great, clear weather.

However, check the YouTube video below which shows what it MAY be like in mid-June....
