Ultimate Three Peaks Challenge – June 2014

Three Peaks ChallengeThe Three Peaks Challenge – climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, Britain’s three highest summits – looks pretty tough as a stand-alone challenge. How about cycling between the three for good measure? That’s exactly what the new Ultimate Three Peaks Challenge, launched by children’s charity Action Medical Research, is proposing. As they put it: ‘Up the mountain, down the mountain, cycle to the next, repeat…’


For those who love to push themselves to the limit, this brand new challenge takes place from Saturday 21 to Sunday 28 June 2014; over the course of seven days, participants will climb just under 3000 metres in some of the wildest mountain terrain, and cycle 450 miles through some of the best scenery, in Scotland, England and Wales. Every tough mile cycled and trekked will be in support of Action Medical Research to fund vital research to help sick babies and children and the event will be fully supported and led by experienced guides. The pace will be set by the cycle leader and support will be on hand to help out at the tougher times to ensure you make it to the finish.


Registration is £99 with a fundraising target of £2000 and the itinerary looking like this:


Day 1: Arrive Glasgow; Climb Ben Nevis (1344m); Cycle to Fort William (a mere 3miles)

Day 2: Cycle Fort William to Paisley (102miles)
