HAVE YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO CLIMB THE UK'S THREE HIGHEST PEAKS?

Ben Nevis. Scafell Pike. Snowdon. Join Global Adventure Challenges to climb the highest mountains in the UK in 15 hours.

The trip will take you to Fort William before trekking to the summit of the first and highest peak – Ben Nevis. You'll then set off for the Lake District to conquer Scafell Pike by night. The final ascent takes place in Snowdonia National Park, where we climb the mighty Snowdon.

You'll climb 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!

Conquer the Three Peaks Challenge and raise vital funds for your local hospitals across Bristol city centre and Weston.

Mountains are great. Three peaks are greater.
