Accompanying the Snowdon 500 challenge, the Welsh 3 Peaks challenge is a more difficult climb - taking on 3 mountains in two days! Participants will climb Pen Y Farn and Cadair Idris on Saturday 13th May, and Mount Snowdon on Sunday 14th May. There will be experienced event marshals and mountain rangers monitoring the mountains, and all funds raised go towards funding research into treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.
£45 registration fee per person and a target of £250 fundraising each.
Marshals and rangers will be on the mountains between 5am-6pm, but it takes approximately 2 hours to complete Pen Y Fan, 5 hours to complete Cadair Idris and 5 hours to complete Mount Snowdon so walkers must take this into consideration.
