Navigating in Snowdonia

Our Three Peaks Challenge Training Course gives you the opportunity to spend two days with us in the mountains of Scotland, the Lake District or Snowdonia, during which time you’ll learn to use a map and compass effectively, develop pacing strategies, gain insight into the best foods to fuel your challenge and be given a 16 week fitness training plan developed specifically for the Three Peaks Challenge by an elite athlete coach at Loughborough University.

You’ll also get the opportunity to climb one of the Three Peaks Challenge mountains at challenge pace under the watchful eyes of a local Mountain Leader.

The weekend looks something like this:

An opportunity to learn some navigation skills, discuss kit and equipment, packing your rucksack, nutrition and hydration, physical fitness plus strategies for a successful challenge. Takes place on and around Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike or Snowdon. Duration 6-8 hours.
An ascent of Ben Nevis (via Pony Track), Scafell Pike (from Wasdale Head) or Snowdon (via the Pyg Track) with an opportunity to test your kit before your challenge, discuss pacing strategies, plus practice some of your new found navigation skills with an experienced Mountain Leader. Duration 6-7 hours.

Both days not only offer the opportunity to learn some new skills and test your fitness, but also to pick the brains of your instructor to avoid the mistakes that can sabotage a sub-24 hour Three Peaks Challenge!
