Walking the three peaks – a challenge not to be missed

Walking The Three Peaks – A Challenge Not To Be Missed

The National Three Peaks Challenge is an endurance test in Great Britain, where the aim is to climb the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland in under 24 hours. Generally, the challenge begins at the foot of Ben Nevis in Scotland. Once this mountain has been successfully negotiated, participants jump in their cars and move onto the next port of call – Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. The final mountain in the challenge is Scafell Pike in North West England. Completing the challenge in under the target time of 24 hours is no mean feat and requires meticulous planning, a good walking pace as well as a little bit of luck – a batch of bad traffic on route to one of the mountains can seriously hamper your efforts.

The great thing about the challenge is that you don’t need to be particularly fit to take part – the mountains aren’t too physically demanding or steep, and are small in comparison to many famous international mountains like Everest. Many groups undertake the challenge for charity with participants getting sponsored for a successful attempt.

It is important to be prepared for the challenge – planning your route is key, and taking the right equipment for the job can make a big difference. Probably top of the list is a good sturdy pair of walking boots – you need something comfortable as you will be walking on uneven terrain for much of the day.  Brasher boots fit the bill – Supalite Hybrid boots offer high performance and grip, and are waterproof which is an essential asset given the unpredictable British weather you will encounter on your travels.  Planning the trip in advance and buying some good quality equipment should pave the way for a great day out.
