From 04/06/2021 to 03/10/2021
Brace yourself for a fast-paced and physically challenging adventure as you take on the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales. Considered one of Britain’s toughest outdoor challenges, the National 3 Peaks Challenge takes in the dizzying heights of Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m).
Over the course of two days you will trek around 26 miles and ascend to a total height of almost 3,000m. This is a serious and tough challenge which requires a good level of fitness, as well as plenty of grit and determination. Ultimately, however, your hard work will be rewarded with spectacular views and a huge sense of achievement knowing you've done something amazing to support young people with cancer.
I want to take part
We don’t have charity places in this event, but you can still take part and help young people with cancer.
Simply buy your place directly through the organisers, and select Teenage Cancer Trust when you choose your charity. There are a range of dates available, choose that one that suits you.
They’ll let us know once you’ve registered, and we’ll send you a free Teenage Cancer Trust T-shirt along with a handy welcome pack filled with helpful fundraising ideas.
How much is it?
There are 2 different payment options available:
- Minimum sponsorship: You pay a £75 registration fee and then raise a minimum of £795 in sponsorship. Teenage Cancer Trust will then cover the cost of your challenge.
- Self funder: You pay a £75 registration fee on booking, and then £390 five weeks before your challenge to cover the cost. You then raise what you can for Teenage Cancer Trust.

How you can help young people
- £100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Coordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find out about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.
£200 could pay for one of our Youth Support Coordinators to give a group of young people a night out at the cinema or bowling – a world away from treatments and appointments.
£810 could provide WiFi or a phoneline in a unit for a year, so young people always feel connected and can keep up with their studies.
£950 could pay for a young person to attend our post-treatment programme, The Way Forward, and learn how to deal with tough issues like fertility, jobs and money with other young people.
