Welsh 3000s - 15 Peaks

To climb all the Welsh mountains over 3000 feet is one of the country's great long walks - over 45km of walking and nearly 4000m of ascent. To do this in 24 hours is a huge challenge and will take between 18 and 22 hours. Your legs might feel it for a few days though! The record for running them belongs to Finlay Wild who managed it in a staggering 4 hours and 10 minutes!

You will need to be fit and accustomed to walking over rough mountain terrain. The route includes steep climbs upto grade 1 scrambling and steep descents on grass, loose scree and boulders. Ideally you will have done a few long mountain walks before linking several mountains together. 

As guide to fitness, if you have walked up Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) and felt ok at the end enough to turn round and do it again - 5 times more - then this challenge could be for you.

Our 24 hour events include:

  • Small teams led by local expert Mountain Leaders - we do our best to ensure participants are grouped with others walking at the same pace.

  • Transport to the start and back to your car at the end.

  • Support van at each road crossing - Nant Peris and Ogwen.

  • Optional bunkhouse accommodation (booked and paid separately) Bunkhouse is at start end of route.

The day will start in Bethesda at 02:50. From here we take a taxi to the start at Pen Y Pass then walk back to Bethesda at the end.
