Welsh 3000s Challenge

'In order to complete the Welsh 3000s Challenge you are required to have been at the top of all 15 of the mountains over 3000 ft in Wales within the space of 24 hours, without using any form of transport. The length is about 24 miles, but the walks to the start point and down from the finish point can take it to over 30 miles in total. The walk is also known as "The 14 Peaks" (although there are officially 15 peaks, or possibly 16).'

Type of Walk

'A good challenge for any fit walker which also is one of the best walks in Snowdownia. The route ascends all the peaks over 3000 feet starting with Snowdon (Yr Wydffa) and finishing with Foel Fras in the Carneddau.'

The Welsh 3000s Challenge : 'You don't need to be a fell runner. Many people walk this. However, it's extremely tough, and is a big step up from something like the "Three Peaks Challenge". It's only suitable for very fit and experienced mountain walkers.'
