The Snowdonia Challenge

The Snowdonia Challenge


Now in its third year this unique 100km walking challenge is attracting walkers from across the world.
The first Snowdonia Challenge was held in Betws-y-Coed, North Wales in 2017. The perfect base to explore some of the less visited parts of Snowdonia with some of the best views the national park has to offer.
Not just your average walking challenge, Snowdonia Challenge is the only event of its kind in the UK!
Not for the faint hearted, to take on the full three day challenge you will need commitment and determination to prepare for and complete this event.
Snowdonia Challenge is a test of mental and physical resilience and team work and will take you on a journey of self-discovery. It is inspired by multi-day challenges used as military training events in Europe.

This is not just about challenging yourself though. Taking part in the Snowdonia Challenge you will be part of an amazing adventure where you will make new friends and explore parts of Snowdonia you’ve never been before.
Full event – 3 day walking event – 100km over 3 days
Or if you’d like to be a part of it but can’t commit to the full 3 days then join us for 1 or 2 days.

Each morning we start and finish in the beautiful village of Betws-y-Coed. On each day we follow a different route through the stunning Snowdonia mountains and forests, enjoying amazing views, hidden lakes and getting close to nature.
All of the routes are well marked and marshalled so no navigation is necessary, and you’ll be supported by a team of professionals the whole way. In fact, right from signing up you’ll get all the support you need including kit lists, training plans and fundraising advice.

If you chose to fundraise for your challenge you can take part in this event for a charity of your choice either as an individual or as part of a charity team.
You can also join one of our partner charity teams for a registration fee of just £45.
