UK Three Peaks Weekend
A Bucket list challenge!
Dates: 10th -12th May 2024
Registration Fee = £95 (Non Refundable)
Minimum Fundraising Target = £1000 (80% of funds must have been raised and with Derby County Community Trust 12 weeks prior to the event (16th February 2024))
This an event that is on a lot of people’s bucket list and Derby County Community Trust are working with Global Challenge Adventures to provide the opportunity for you to complete this iconic endurance trek whilst raising vital funds for the work of the Trust.
Join us as we climb the highest mountains in the UK – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon!
We head to Fort William on the Friday evening before trekking to the summit of our first and highest peak – Ben Nevis on Saturday morning. We then set off for the Lake District to conquer Scafell Pike by night. Our final ascent takes place in Snowdonia National Park, where we climb the mighty Snowdon on Sunday!
Our target trekking time is 15 hours or less, the equivalent available trekking time for the traditional 24 hour Three Peaks Challenge. There is a maximum available trekking time of 18 hours. We’ll climb around 9,500 feet and walk approximately 22 miles - it’s no wonder the National Three Peaks Challenge is the most highly regarded trekking challenge in the UK!
A tough challenge awaits and your boundaries will be pushed, but with the support and exceptional care and encouragement from both DCCT and Global Challenge Adventures staff, we can conquer this classic charity challenge. We’ll be driving the team through the night, guiding each member up each mountain, and even giving the occasional hug and high five when required. Join our team and tick this classic UK challenge off your list!
In order to fulfil the itinerary and complete all three mountains within the scope and limitations of the challenge itinerary including contracted staff working hours, there are strict cut off times in place. The maximum trekking times are Ben Nevis - 7 hours, Scafell Pike - 5.5 hours, Snowdon - 5.5 hours. Whilst we offer support and encouragement to all trekkers wanting to complete the challenge, with regret, anyone failing to meet the interim cut off times in place will therefore exceed the maximum trekking time available and will be required to return with a guide to the waiting support team.
