20hr Challenge



Age 18 & over

  • 20 hrs multi terrain running


The Welsh 3000 Challenge (14 Peaks) climbs all the 3000ft peaks in Snowdonia in a continuous journey. Highlights along the way include summiting Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales and England. The knife edged ridge traverse of Crib Goch*, scrambling over the incredible Glyders and Tryfan before taking on the stunning and remote Carneddau range. We have been guiding the Welsh 3000 challenge regularly for over 20 years, with a range of client groups from large charity events over three days, through to groups of fit runners, aiming to complete all peaks within 12 hours. The record, (from 1st to last peak) stands at an almost unbelievable time of 4hrs 10 minutes. This doesn’t however, include the time taken to climb the first peak nor descend the last. Most people will aim to complete this challenge over 2-3 days. We offer the Welsh 3000s as a 20hr guided challenge or spread over 2/3 days.

This event is part of Welsh 3000 Challenge (14 Peaks).
