Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge

Sign up for this event

Event type



16-17 June 2023



Minimum sponsorship


Join TeamCRW and take on the Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge! You'll climb the three highest mountains in Wales: Snowdon (1085m), Cadair Idris (893m) and Pen y Fan (886m) all whilst raising money for world-class cancer research in Wales for Wales.

This bespoke Cancer Research Wales event will be hugely rewarding and a great way of seeing the three highest peaks and the different mountain ranges in Wales.

Taking it on as a team, this event will start with a group coach collecting everyone on Friday 16 June in Cardiff and will travel through Wales to the Snowdonia National Park. Here we’ll settle into our group accommodation, a quality bunkhouse situated near to Snowdon, enjoy a team meal, listen to an event brief by our event leaders JT Expeditions, before getting an early night.

On Saturday morning, we’ll begin the challenge taking in some incredible scenery along the way before finishing in the dark on the wonderful Pen y Fan mountain and taking our coach back to Cardiff where it all started!
