The Three Peaks Extra Challenge
About the group
I am a long distance walker and for five weeks this summer- 8/9 July until about 12 August 2013- I intend to complete the UK National Three Peaks Challenge with a difference. I'm calling it, 'The Three Peaks Extra Challenge', climbing the highest three mountains in Wales, England and Scotland/ UK. I am going to walk Snowdon, walk to Scarfell Pike and climb that. Then walk to Ben Nevis and finish by climbing that.
1) I must climb Snowdon, Scarfell Pike and Ben Nevis and the whole distance in-between
2) If I am to use transport I MUST return to the point I first used it and then continue walking
3) I must carry all my kit needed for the whole expedition (clothes, tent, sleeping bag etc.), including up and down each mountain
4) I am to keep an accurate and detailed route card with the date/ time, location (including grid reference), name and signature of local people to verify my locations
The distance is about 465m/ 745km. I intend to collect money for The Scout Association.

Fundraising for The Scout Association
The Scout Association provides adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for 400,000 young people aged 6-25. Internationally, we have over 28 million young people enjoying the benefits of Scouting across 216 countries.
Personal development means promoting the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of the individual, helping them achieve their full potential. In Scouting, we believe that young people develop most when they are 'learning by doing,' when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves.
