Team 3 Peaks Challenge


 

New for 2019, our first ever Team 3 Peaks Challenge.

Enter a team of 2-4 people and compete against other teams on the mountains to get yourself on the CC Team Challenge Leaderboard!

The Challenge Central Mountain Crew will be on each mountain to oversee the challenge with check points on/off as well as the peak of each summit.

In the interest of safety, we will only be recording the mountain times which will collectively provide the team’s final time for the leaderboard.

The driving hours will be set to 11 hours regardless of the actual time taken as we want to ensure everyone drives safely and responsibly within the law. The Team Challenge is about the time on the mountains; not about the time on the roads!

 

14th - 15th September 2019  - £200 per team (2-4 people)

Please Contact Us to book a team place
