National 3 Peaks

Join us for THE landmark weekend endurance challenge!


Your National Three Peaks Challenge takes on the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales all within 48 hours. The trek covers 25 miles and involves 3,000 metres of ascent .

Your challenge will take in one of Scotland’s most scenic areas; Glen Nevis Valley. Ben Nevis, the largest mountain in the UK, standing at 1,344m peak affords spectacular views. 

In the Lake District you will climb Scafell Pike; the highest mountain in England standing at 978m, surrounded by the breath-taking Lakeland. 

Snowdon completes your three peaks, standing at 1,085m. Also known as Yr Wyddfa in Welsh, it is a national treasure with its unique bio-diversity of plants and wildlife.

Taking part in this extraordinary adventure will not only leave you with lifelong memories but your sponsorship will also go towards making a real difference to people with life-limiting illnesses. Your funds will enable us to continue giving life-enhancing care not only to our patients but to their family and friends who are also affected.

There are three ways to take part in this challenge. For full details please contact us here. We work with a number of tour companies who may vary slightly in price and experience however we are happy to find the perfect match for you. 

  • Raise the minimum amount of sponsorship of around £750 with a deposit to pay of typically under £100.
  • Self-fund the challenge costs and raise as much sponsorship as you can.
  • Partly self-fund the challenge costs and raise the remaining in sponsorship.

 If you would like to direct your fundraising to the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre, please inform one of our fundraisers.

Joining Team ARTHUR  will give you access to a wealth of fundraising experience as we will support you along the way with our fundraising tools, promotional items and media coverage. Remember, any UK taxpayer can increase their gift by 25p for every pound donated through Gift Aid. (If your sponsorship is covering the cost of your challenge we are unable to claim gift aid on any donation received from family members. Please refer to the Fundraising Team for further information.)

Dates for upcoming trips are:
Throughout Spring and Summer

Horizon Discovery who took on the National 3 Peaks challenge in June 2014 and raised £2,902.44. 

Members of staff from Horizon Discovery took part in the challenging hike between the three highest peaks in the UK.

Jane, who was a member of the team said:
"To be honest we had the best weather! Ben Nevis was first with the sun out making it quite warm and clear skies. Scafell was clear with a few clouds in the sky and a nice temperature.  Then it was the same on Snowdon except the peak was in cloud, but we were all up and down all three mountains in the dry."

Ascend the 3 Peaks yourself with Team ARTHUR! See below for details on how to join.
