With the last two annual events falling foul of the Covid pandemic many of those who hoped to take part in 2020 and 2021 have had plenty of time to put in some extra training to get ready for this year’s challenge.
But that means we have less places than usual up for grabs so, if you want to be a part of our #TeamTangerine, climb a total ascent of 9,800ft through both day and night, test your physical and mental limits, and gain a real sense of achievement as you enjoy the stunning ascents (and descents) of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis, then get in touch soon.
Keep you safe and on course
As always, we’ll be accompanied by our qualified and experienced Safety Team to keep you safe and on course on the mountains. And we’ll provide all the necessary travel to and between the peaks, accommodation and food, including packed lunches on both walking days.
Our Fundraising team are also on hand to support you in the lead up to the event, with fundraising tips, access to a closed Facebook group and training, dietary and equipment tips.
The Challenge is definitely one not to be missed – but don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what a couple of recent participants have told us.
University researcher Dr Nick Penfold took on the Three Peaks 11 years after his near-death experience from meningitis at the age of 17.
He said: “The Three Peaks Challenge was absolutely amazing. It was one of the most difficult challenges that I have faced both in terms of its physicality and the mental determination required to succeed.
“Summiting all three peaks in such a short space of time was an amazing feeling, but personally nothing can beat ascending Scafell Pike through boulder fields during the pitch black of night.”
Compassionate and supportive
Holly Jackson is another person who fought back from the devastation of meningitis to conquer the Three Peaks.
She told us: “The Safety Team and the rest of the team were so compassionate and supportive, and it was really one of the best weekends of my life.
“Everything was so well organised by Meningitis Now from the lunch packs, pick up times, the hotel and facilities on our last night, it was all fantastic.”
So, if you’d like to experience all this for yourself, we’d love to have you on the team.
