Mind - Three Peaks Challenge UK
15th - 17th June 2012
Described as the UK's ultimate challenge, join Mind in climbing the three UK's highest peaks in 24 hours!
Beginning with a morning ascent of Ben Nevis (1,344m) then transferring to the Lake District and climbing Scafell Pike (978m) through the night with only your head torch for light, you'll then have an early morning ascent of your final mountain in Wales, Snowdon (1,085m) to complete the challenge and finish with a celebratory breakfast. And all in 24 hours!
Included in the trip is a mountain guide, transport (starting and finishing at Chester Train station), accommodation (bunk house Friday night), breakfast on Saturday morning, 3,000m of non-technical climbing and an amazing experience!
Whether you want to conquer the Three Peaks as a personal challenge or with a group of friends, we'd be delighted to have you on the team! We ask each individual participant to pay a registration fee of £75 (including VAT) and to raise a minimum sponsorship amount of £500 (excluding Gift Aid)

How fit do i need to be
The Three Peaks Challenge is a tough challenge, but with training is very achievable! You'll need to ensure that you have a fair few long walks under your belt - at least 4 to 5 hours and preferably including some fairly undulating terrain too. You should be able to climb a hill of 300m (vertical ascent), and 2km in approximately 40 minutes. Preparing for your sleep deprivation might be more difficult - but willpower will come in handy!
