what do we do?

Individuals and small groups can book onto our National 3 Peaks open bus challenges.

Corporate / private groups can have events organised and run as above if the numbers involved are suitable for the format, however typically we offer private guiding of your group / team throughout the challenge. 

We transport you from local accommodation to the start of the challenge and back again at the end. We can also arrange to collect and drop at local railway stations and airports before and after the challenge. We have mountain leaders accompany and guide your team through the challenge.

If you are a charity looking for a different, exciting and involving fundraising event, then adventure challenge could be for you.

As an example, 120 fundraisers taking part in the 10 peaks challenge or Yorkshire 3 Peaks costs from £60 per person. Typically, charities ask that fundraisers pay an entry fee to cover the cost of the event and then raise a minimum amount of sponsorship, usually around £200.   This means an income of £24,000 for your charity if everyone raises just the minimum: With such an involved challenge we find that people end up raising much more than the minimum.

We provide transport from nearby accommodation to the start of the challenge and back again at the end. We have a team of mountain leaders and first aiders marshalling the challenge and logging teams through checkpoints and overseeing their safety. Our support vehicles and crew are on standby in the valleys to help evacuate participants unable to continue. Teams are provided with radios for communication with the marshalled checkpoints and mountain leaders / first aiders on route. They are also provided with maps, routes, challenge information, kit lists, team bibs / numbers and drinking water.

Typically fundraisers take part in small teams of friends numbering between 3 - 6, with team start times being started slightly staggered over an hour or so in the morning.

Alternatively for smaller events you can enter a team or teams of up to 12 and have them privately guided through the challenge.
