Mount Snowdon Challenge

3rd to 5th April 2020.
In 2020 a small team will take on Mount Snowdon!

Walking the Watkin Path the route is one of the most challenging as it has the most height gain of all the routes to the top! Climbing Snowdon is an excellent challenge for people of any ability; all you need is a sprinkling of enthusiasm and a dash of determination to ensure an incredibly rewarding day.

At 1085m above sea level, it is the highest mountain in England and Wales. It offers the most spectacular panoramic views stretching across Snowdonia National Park and beyond.

It is an incredibly scenic walk that starts in an ancient woodland, follows a mountain river with breathtaking waterfalls and winds through an old quarry with mine workings, on a very good path with qualified mountain leader Clive.

The path soon becomes much steeper and here you will meet the physicality of the challenge as height is gained.

Distance to the top: 8 miles/ 13 Km
Ascent: 1015m
Time: 8 hours
Start point: Pont Bethania car park

To participate in the challenge there is a cost of £150, this includes: A qualified mountain leader to take you on the trip and give you all the advice you need. Accommodation for 2 nights in a bunk house, and your travel costs to get there. we leave from Brightlingsea.

There is no limit to how much, or how little you fundraise on top of £150 cost of the trip. We just ask you try your very best!


You will need to have:

Decent walking boots, a rucksack, water-bottle, lunch box, waterproof coat, waterproof trousers, a cheery smile, warm clothing, hat, torch.

We will aim to leave Brightlingsea by 4pm on Friday afternoon (3rd April). The total journey time is 5 hours 3 minutes. The aim is to be in bed by 11:30pm. On Saturday morning the aim is to start the walk by 9am. After the walk, we will spend the evening at a nearby pub for dinner and a couple of celebration drinks. On Sunday morning there will be some leisure time before we make the journey home.
