Sponsored Events and Mountain Challenges
charities – corporate teams – groups – individuals
Whether your aim is to raise money for charity, a team-building exercise with a difference, or purely the satisfaction of completing one of these challenges, we can provide the event for you.
As a not-for-profit social enterprise with an involvement in social and environmental issues, we are the natural choice for fundraisers. If you represent a charity or large group wishing to organise an event then please take a look at our Information for Charities and Large Groups page.
In addition to mountain challenges we also run climbing, abseiling and mixed activity events. No challenge is too big or too small for us so if you don’t see what you want here then get in touch – we are happy to work with you to come up with the right event for you.
The Lakes 3000s
Region: The Lake District (Cumbria)
The Challenge: To complete the circular route of all four 3000ft peaks in the Lake District (Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Scafell and Scafell Pike) in 24 hours
Distance: 45 miles
This route features less in the way of difficult rocky ground than it's Welsh cousin (though it has its share), but more than makes up for this with it's extra 15 miles of ground covered and is generally considered the harder challenge. Only the exceptionally fast can expect to complete it in daylight hours, most of us must expect several hours of walking in darkness, something that only adds to its epic feel and the resulting sense of satisfaction.
The Welsh 3000s (aka The 15 Peaks Challenge)
Region: Snowdonia (North Wales)
The Challenge: To climb every 3000ft peak in Wales in 24 hours. (We also run this as a 3-day event)
Distance: 48km (30 miles)
Price: From £139 per person
The Welsh 3000's challenge, also known as 'The 15 peaks' or '14 peaks challenge', follows a route across Snowdonia taking in every mountain peak of 3000 feet or more in height. This is a long and hard route, in total you will ascend nearly 4000 m (13,000ft) in vertical height, but also a very beautiful and rewarding one. The varied nature of the terrain all adds to the interest; you will encounter not just good paths and grassy slopes but also knife-edge ridges and rocky scrambles as you progress.
The Yorkshire 3 Peaks
Region: Yorkshire Dales
The Challenge: To complete the circular walk of the Yorkshire 3 peaks (Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough) in 12 hours.
Distance: 38km (23miles)
The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is set in some of the best scenery the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. The 23 miles in 12 hours is achievable for most but is by no means a push over. This is an absolute classic mountain challenge.
You can take part in this challenge with a team of friends or collegues on a date that suits you . We can also put on large multi-team events for bigger work places and charities.>
If you have a team through your work or other social group we can run this event just for you by either accompanying your teams around the route or by simply meeting them at check points along the way. Groups of under 18's (school groups for example) will need to be accompanied by us on this event.
