SNOWDONIA’S UNIQUE WALKING CHALLENGE

Now in it’s third year this 3 day walking challenge is the only event of its kind in the UK! Not for the faint hearted, to take on the full challenge you will need commitment and determination to prepare for and complete this event.

The first Snowdonia Challenge was held in Betws-y-Coed, North Wales in 2017. The perfect base to explore some of the less visited parts of Snowdonia with some of the best views the national park has to offer.

This is not just about challenge and adventure though.

Come on your own or come as a team; taking part in the Snowdonia Challenge you will be part of an amazing 3 days where you will make new friends and explore parts of Snowdonia you’ve never been before.

Full event – 3 day walking event – 100km over 3 days

Or if you’d like to be a part of it but can’t commit to the full 3 days then join us for 1 or 2 days.

P Company Challenge

So, you’ve run a few marathons, cycled a few sportives, run a tough mudder, you want to try something harder, something that will challenge you not just physically but mentally as well. Now you’re ready for a new challenge……

This is adventure and endurance racing that replicates stages from the elite military forces around the World, a series of weekends designed to take and test you to your limits. The Marines Commando Course in Scotland, the Parachute Regiments P Company in South Wales, and U.S. Pararescue Selection in the North of England, will push you to the edge. From full kit marches, assault courses, swimming and running at Iron man standards, to Hell Night, you will encounter a whole new world of pain.

The P Company Challenge tests are taken on consecutive days and include, but are not limited to: a 9 mile speed march; a 6 mile endurance course across rough moorland and woodland terrain which includes tunnels, pipes, wading pools, and an underwater culvert; the Tarzan Assault Course which starts with a death slide and ends with a rope climb up a 30ft near-vertical wall; a 30mile march across moorland, wearing full fighting order. You’ll need to be in the best condition of your life to make it through!

To find out more about this Epic event follow the Facebook Page or check out the P Company Website.
