The Three Peaks Challenge is by far our most popular adventure. For over nine years now we have planned and co-ordinated National and Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge events for groups, individuals, corporate teams, major charities and even other Three Peaks Challenge providers. To date our Three Peaks Challenge events have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for worthy causes. We are extremely proud of our success in helping teams achieve their aims – whether that be the Three Peaks Challenge in 24 hours, or simply getting to the finish.
The National Three Peaks Challenge involves consecutively climbing the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales. This can be done over 24 hours or in three days.
It’s a common misconception that the Three Peaks Challenge involves the three highest peaks in Britain; it doesn’t! Over one hundred peaks in Scotland are higher than Scafell Pike, and fifty six are higher than Snowdon! But what it does involve is climbing the highest peak in each of the 3 countries.
Our Yorkshire 3 Peaks events are perfect for individuals, groups and corporate teams. Makes great training for the National Three Peaks!
We’d be delighted to organise your 2015 Three Peaks Challenge event and add you to the list of our many satisfied Three Peaks Challenge finishers!
The 24 Hour Challenge
The Mountain and Glen Three Peaks Challenge is a tough test of endurance by anyone’s standards! Taking in the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales, the challenge is to complete all three within 24 hours. The Three Peaks Challenge starts in Fort William, the first challenge being the brooding mass of Ben Nevis. On completion we head directly to the Lake District for phase two, Scafell Pike. Again, on completion we head off for our final leg of the Three Peaks Challenge, up the steep slopes of Snowdon in Wales. Sleeping and eating are attempted in the vehicle between mountains!
The 24 hour Three Peaks Challenge is a great team-building event for corporate teams, and a great fundraiser for charities. We can put together a bespoke Three Peaks Challenge to meet your exact requirements.
We offer the Three Peaks Challenge in 3 formats; Our “Premium” option is extremely popular for groups and includes everything you need for a successful challenge, our “Premium Plus” option is a fully inclusive package which includes a few extra touches to make your event more memorable and our “Open Three Peaks Challenge” is a more basic package for individuals and small groups which takes place on fixed dates and allows you to join other adventure-minded individuals to make up a team.
3 Peaks in 3 Days
Having served all over the world for over 20 years as a Royal Marines Commando, including a period organising adventurous training for the Royal Navy, Jim decided to put all these skills into his own business and formed Mountain and Glen in 2005.
Since our inception, we’ve always been about providing challenging experiences in the safest way possible. We pride ourselves on our safety record; many of our instructors come from a Mountain Rescue or military background, so anyone who signs up for one of our events does so in the knowledge that they’re in safe hands!
