The Ultimate Three Peaks: the ultimate challenge

Are you looking for a challenge of a lifetime? We have just the stamina-busting unique event for you – the newly-launched Ultimate Three Peaks

We are offering the Three Peaks Challenge with a twist - instead of driving between the three peaks of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, super fit adventurers will be cycling all the way! The best thing is that it’s a first-of-a-kind, so you could be one of the very first people to tackle this action-packed, trekking and cycling event.

Over the course of seven days, participants will climb just under 3,000 metres in some of the wildest mountain terrain, and cycle 450 miles through some of the best scenery, in Scotland, England and Wales.

You can take some comfort in knowing that every tough mile cycled and trekked will be in support of Action Medical Research and will help to fund vital research to help sick babies and children.

The event will be fully supported and led by experienced guides. The pace will be set by the cycle leader and support will be on hand to help out at the tougher times to ensure you make it to the finish.

Make no mistake, this challenge will be gruelling so only the brave and super fit need apply!
