Event description

Description

The RUCK IT National Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, often within 24 hours. Arguably the very best adventure challenge possible on these isles.

The aim is to cover the 23 miles of walking distance, 462 mile drive and 3064 metre (10,052ft) ascent in just 24 hours. Sounds insane? Yes it's tough but with our experienced mountain guids we not only make it possible but very enjoyalble too.

The three mountains are:

  • Ben Nevis in Scotland (1345m)
  • Scafell Pike in England (978m)
  • Snowdon in Wales (1085m)

Fitness is only one attribute called for on this epic adventure. Nutrition and a robust, positive mindset is also required in order to complete the challenge in the stated 24hrs but don't worry you'll be walking alongside highly experienced mountain leaders who have a vast amount of knowledge and experience in their field. They will be at hand through the tough times and help you celebrate the victories of each mountain both day and night.
