Take on the National Three Peaks Challenge for Chance to Shine!

Considered one of Britain’s toughest outdoor challenges, the National 3 Peaks Challenge takes in the dizzying heights of Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m).

Over the course of two days you will trek around 26 miles and ascend to a total height of almost 3,000m. This is a serious and tough challenge which requires a good level of fitness, as well as plenty of grit and determination. Ultimately, however, your hard work will be rewarded with spectacular views and a huge sense of achievement knowing you are raising money for Chance to Shine, helping give young people across the UK the to chance to play, learn and develop through cricket.
