Understanding our challenge types

Download everything you need to know about about this challenge

Our challenge takes us into the heart of the breath taking Western Highlands in order to conquer the highest peak in Britain set at 1,345m above sea level.

Our trail to the summit is technically easy, but trekking Ben Nevis is a challenge – stamina and determination are a must! The stunning views of the highlands will be with us all the way and provide a fantastic backdrop to one of the most sought after charity challenges in the UK!

Most have not experienced the beauty of the Scottish Highlands so we invite you with us on special journey – don’t underestimate the fun and camaraderie on this UK weekend challenge.  Return transport is provided from Glasgow enabling you to just enjoy our experience.
