Chloe and Kate will be taking on the challenge of trekking up the 3 peaks in 24 hours starting on Saturday 10th May with the target to finish by 5pm on Sunday 11th May.
The National Three Peaks Challenge is an event in which we will both attempt to climb the highest mountains of Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours. We will climb each peak in turn, and will be driven from the foot of one mountain to the next.
The total distance that will be walked is estimated at 42/43 kilometres (26/27 miles) with a total ascent of 9,800 feet.
The highest of the three mountains is Ben Nevis in Scotland with an elevation of 1344m above sea level. Second in the challenge is Scafell Pike in the Lake District at 978m this is the lowest summit of the three. Finally, we will reach Snowdon in Wales, with an elevation of 1085m.
