3 PEAKS 24HOUR
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?
Individually each mountain is achievable for anyone of good fitness. Taking on all 3 in 24hours requires a higher fitness level and you should train for this event
To achieve our 24hour goal we need to complete the hikes in the following times
UP & DOWN!
BEN NEVIS = 5hours 30
Scaffell Pike =3hours 30
Snowdon = 4hours
You can expect to be on your feet walking for 13hours & in a minibus for 11hours.
We provide a training plan with your booking. We reccommend as a minimum you should be going out walking (uphills & in your kit) at least once a week for 3 - 8 hours. For the 12 weeks leading up to your challenge
