3 Peaks Challenge - Great Western Air Ambulance Charity
Join Great Western Air Ambulance Charity for this iconic trek and help us save local lives.

With a target trekking time of 15 hours (the equivalent available trekking time for the traditional 24 hour challenge) or less and a maximum available trekking time of 18 hours, we’ll climb around 10,000 feet and have walked approx. 22 miles. It’s no wonder this charity challenge is the most highly regarded trekking challenge in the UK!

A tough challenge, yes, but with our support and exceptional care and encouragement we can conquer this classic charity challenge. We’ll be driving the team through the night, guiding each member up each mountain and even giving the occasional hug and high five when required. Join our team and tick this classic UK challenge off your list.

Please note, the itinerary for this challenge is complex and subject to change.

In order to fulfil the itinerary and complete all 3 mountains within the scope and limitations of the challenge itinerary including contracted staff working hours, there are strict cut off times in place. The maximum trekking times are Ben Nevis - 7 hours, Scafell Pike - 5.5 hours, Snowdon - 5.5 hours. Whilst we offer support and encouragement to all trekkers wanting to complete the challenge, with regret, anyone failing to meet the interim cut off times in place will therefore exceed the maximum trekking time available and will be required to return with a guide to the waiting support team.
