Join team Regain and take on the 3 highest mountains in the UK!

This physically demanding challenge is not for the feint hearted! Considered one of the toughest challenges in the UK, our challenge will see us walk Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m) in under 24 hours. You will trek approx. 26 miles and ascend almost 3,000m.

This is a serious challenge, which involves a good level of fitness and plenty of grit and determination.

  • Where will you pick me up from?

    There will be two official pick-ups enroute to Fort William in Scotland. The first pick up will be in Oxford at approx. 6am and the second in Stoke-on-Trent at approx. 8am. Exact locations and information on parking will be sent before the challenge. If the above pick-ups aren’t suitable for you, please get in touch with us to discuss.

  • Where will you drop me off?

    There will be two official drop offs, which will match the above. You are of course welcome to make your own way home from Snowdon and you may have friends and family meet you at the finish.

  • What equipment do I need?

    It is imperative you come well equipped for this challenge, as the weather up the mountains is unpredictable and changes rapidly. If you do not have the correct equipment you will be unable to take part in the challenge. We suggest you bring the following: • Well-worn in walking boots or fell running shoes. • Full waterproofs, with spares if you have them. • At least one change of clothes in case you get wet on one of the peaks. • 25-35 litre rucksack. • Head torch. • Waterbottle.

  • What paths will we be taking up the 3 peaks?

    Ben Nevis We will take the Pony Track up and down Ben Nevis, which is 10.5 miles (17km) up and down, which includes 1,352 metres of ascent. Scafell Pike We will start and finish the Scafell Pike climb at Wasdale Head. The route is 12 miles (20km) and includes 989m metres of ascent. Snowdon We will take the Pyg track up and down Snowdon, which is 6.7 miles (10.8km) and includes 723 metres of ascent.

  • What are the planned times?

    We are aiming to complete the 3 Peaks Challenge in under 24 hours so the following times will need to be met: Start Ben Nevis = 6pm Finish Ben Nevis = 12am Start Scafell Pike = 6am Finish Scafell Pike = 10am Start Snowdon = 2pm Finish Snowdon = 6pm

  • How fit will I need to be?

    This challenge is both a mental and physical challenge. You will need to train beforehand and it is unrealistic to expect to complete the challenge without some training. If you have a health condition you should consult your doctor before taking part.

  • What training will I need to do?

    You will need to train beforehand, ideally completing at least one test weekend of walking around eight hours per day for two days.

  • What happens if I need to withdraw from the event?

    If you are unable to continue with the challenge for any reason, you will have to stay on the support bus or make your own way home. We would be able to drop you at a service station on route if you are based in the North.

  • How do I set a fundraising page up?

    When you sign up for the Regain 3 Peaks Challenge, an online fundraising page will automatically be created for you.

how will it work

The Regain support team will pick you up early on Sunday morning (we have two pick up points in Oxford and Stoke-on-Trent) and will drive you up to Fort William in Scotland. We will start the Ben Nevis climb at 6pm in the evening and will expect to be off the mountain by midnight. We will then drive down to the Lake District to climb Scafell Pike. We would expect to start the climb at 6am and be off the mountain by 10am before driving to North Wales to start the final peak Snowdon by 2pm, aiming to finish before our 24 hour cut off time of 6pm.

To take part in the challenge you need to pay a registration fee of £99 and pledge to raise a minimum of £300 for the charity. All funds raised from the day will support Regain, the only charity dedicated to improving the lives of people who have become tetraplegic in a sporting accident.
