Mental Health UKJoin us on an epic trekking adventure and summit the Snowdon three peaks in a single walk whilst fundraising for Mental Health UK.

The three Snowdon peaks consist of the mighty Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, followed by Garnedd Ugain, just 20 meters shorter, and finally the famous knife-edge ridge of Crib Goch.

We have different route options available for the trek which will be decided on group size, ability, weather, and Covid19 precautions. However, all options start and finish in the charming town of Llanberis.

Conquer the 3 Peaks in the Snowdon Mountain range:

 

Snowdon 1085m (3560ft)

Garnedd Ugain 1065m (3494ft)

Crib Goch 923m (3028ft)

 

The Snowdonia mountain range is home to some absolutely spectacular views, arguably the best in the UK. With some breath-taking scenery on display throughout the journey, you’ll be left with a great sense of achievement as you summit some of the highest mountains in Wales.

Charity Sponsorship Terms and Conditions.

The Charity reserves the right to not pay your final balance costs if they have not received sufficient sponsorship monies from you five weeks prior to the challenge. If your balance costs are not paid by the Charity due to sponsorship obligations not being met, Challenge Central reserves the right to cancel your place on the challenge. Your deposit is non-refundable

. Unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Charity, you agree not to use the challenge to raise funds for any cause other than the Charity named on your booking. If you cancel, or you are required to withdraw from the challenge, you will be required to send all sponsorship money collected or received, directly to the Charity. This money will be retained by the Charity unless the sponsor has requested that it be returned to them. When fundraising you must make it absolutely clear how much you are raising and how much of the sponsorship will contribute towards your costs. You must not start to collect sponsorship until you have received written confirmation of your booking from us. This will be your confirmation email and will be sent to you once you have been authorised by your Charity. All sponsorship money should be sent directly to the Charity and not to Challenge Central. The sponsorship shall be treated as a donation to the Charity.
