Three Peaks Trek

Put your best foot forward for CHAS in this almighty trekking adventure, and take on the UK’s tallest mountains as part of the Three Peaks Challenge!

You’ll experience some of the best scenery the UK has to offer, from the rugged beauty of the Glen Nevis Valley to the forests and estuaries of the stunning Snowdonia National Park as you take on Ben Nevis (1,345m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Mount Snowdon (1,085m). Over this 3-day challenge you’ll climb around 3,050 meters and walk approximately 22 miles, aiming to summit all three peaks in a total trekking time of 15 hours or less.

This Trek is graded Extreme (Grade 3) – extreme challenges involve a great deal of endurance, and this one would suit participants with previous mountain experience looking to take their trekking to the next level. This challenge is fast paced, so grit and determination are essential to completing the Three Peaks Trek! A full training guide will be included in your welcome pack and organisers Global Adventure Challenges also run training weekends throughout the year, a fantastic opportunity to meet other participants and train together prior to the event.
