A Welsh mountain trek with a twist!
About the Challenge: This challenge is perfect if you’ve got limited time available! You’ll follow the Llanberis track to climb Wales’ highest mountain by night, arriving before sunrise before making your way back down for a well deserved breakfast.
When: 22nd -23rd May 2021
Distance: 9.5m miles approx.
Our favourite highlight: It has to be standing at the summit and watching the sunrise across the mountain range.
How fit do you need to be? This trek is graded as ‘Challenging’ which means that it is designed to push your boundaries but it should be achievable by anyone as long as you train beforehand.
Costs: You will be required to pay a non refundable registration fee of £49 at the time of booking. After this there are two payment options:
Minimum Sponsorship (Option A): With this option you fundraise a minimum amount of £290 sponsorship for Penny Brohn UK out of which we pay your challenge costs (£145).
Self Funded (Option B): You personally cover the full costs of the challenge out of your own pocket which is £145 and then fundraise as much as you can; all of which comes to the charity.
On the trek you will be provided with a Global Adventure Challenges Leader, professional local guides, drinking water and breakfast. Check out the itinerary for more details of what is and is not included.

Why should you do it? Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer.With over 50% of us living with cancer for 10 years or more, the challenge now is living well with an uncertain future, particularly during these uncertain times. Did you know that
1 in 3 people with cancer have depression or anxiety
9 out of 10 people with cancer have emotional, social, or physical unmet needs at diagnosis
You can make a lasting difference to these people. While the NHS does incredible work in treating cancer, our expertise is vital in helping people understand what it is to live as well and as long as possible. In taking on this trekking challenge you’ll be fundraising to allow us to support cancer patients to regain control of their lives, to remember that they are more than their cancer diagnosis.
