Virtual Welsh3Peaks

take on our virtual welsh3peaks challenge

We challenge you to take on our first ever virtual welsh3peaks challenge in the month of July - that's right, you have the whole month of July to complete this challenge.
The challenge covers the length of the country by conquering the highest mountain in three different mountain rages of North , Mid and South Wales. Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen Y Fan - these make up the famous welsh3peaks challenge. With a combined height of 9,397ft (2,864m), these three mountains are not for the faint hearted and we are offering you an exciting opportunity to take on this amazing challenge..... well sort of! 

There are two options to complete this challenge:

Option 1:

Walk or run the total distance that you would do if you were walking up the three mountains, Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen Y Fan - 20.35 miles or 32.7km

Option 2:

Complete the same number of vertical steps required to climb the three mountains (approx 27,638  which is 1,063 ascents) by walking up and down the stairs if you have them or making use of a sturdy step

Our virtual welsh3peaks challenge allows you to complete the event up and down the stairs and in your own home, in your back garden or even during your allowed outdoor exercise… providing you keep at least a 2 meter distance from other people and follow the government regulations and guidelines.  
This challenge is open to anyone, and all you’ll need is a pedometer if recording your steps – most smartphones have these inbuilt, or there are lots of free apps that will track your steps for you. You will have to input this into your Give Penny page manually. If you are completing the event in distance then you can record this via Strava, Fit Bit or Run-Keeper.

How do I record my challenge?

Upon registration you will receive a link to Give Penny – Give Penny is a platform for this virtual event where you can record your steps/miles so your sponsors can check in on your progress and sponsor you. You will receive more information about this platform upon registration.
It doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to fitness or an experienced trekker; anyone can do this and you have the whole month of July!
The challenge costs £5.00 to register and those that fundraise £30 or more will receive a bespoke medal, made specifically for this challenge. However, no matter how much you can raise, you really will be making a big difference – and we need your support now more than ever to ensure we can continue the care and support our Tŷ Hafan families need.
