Looking for a challenge you’ll never forget?
Our team will meet you beside the old disused Mountain railway station for an early start. You will receive a brief on the event before being split into groups and set off with your guide.
WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?
This event will appeal to everyone from seasoned adventurers to Sunday hikers. The group will be fully guided, getting you safely through the darkness and up to the mountain summit. This is an ideal walk for anyone who would like to summit the highest mountain in South Wales, witness the sunrise and experience being out in the mountains in the dark at the start of a new day. The walk is aimed at all experience levels however, you will need to be reasonably fit to ensure your own enjoyment and that of the group as the trip will take around 7 hours.
You will be fully guided by a qualified mountain leader.

- Travel to and from the start location

- Accommodation before/after the event
YOU WILL NEED TO BRING:
- Suitable walking boots (with ankle support)

If you’re fundraising you’ll confirm which charity you’re supporting via a drop down menu. Be careful to pick the correct one. Once registered your details will be sent to your chosen charity who will get in touch with you regarding your fundraising.
CHARITY FUNDRAISING DEADLINES:
All sponsorship goes direct to the Charity via your online JustGiving page. At least 50% of the sponsorship target should be with the Charity by 3 weeks prior to the Challenge. At this time the Charity pays a Fee for your place to the Organiser (similar to the Self Funding cost – or half of it for Mixed Funding as you’ve already covered half). Failure to meet the deadline may result in cancellation by your charity. The remaining 50%, and any extra, should be with your Charity by 4 weeks after the Challenge.
Mountain weather can be fickle at the best of times and there is no guarantee that you will see the sunrise or even a view. The walk will take place in most weathers but the leader will reserve final judgement on the day (in most cases) and maintains the right to abandon any walk if they feel the safety of themselves or any participant is at risk.
Under 18s taking part cannot sign themselves up – they must be signed up by someone over 18.
Once they’ve registered with us, it will take about 5-7 working days to add them onto our registration forms, and you can then sign up to your chosen challenge in aid of them.
Alternatively you can Self Fund your place and fundraise for them independently with no fundraising commitment.
Please note: the above is relevant for Charity Sponsorship or Mixed Funding places only. If you are entering as a Self Funder you can fundraise for any charity of your choice (only if you want to) & we do not need to be informed.
If you join as a Self Funder however, you have complete flexibility on who you fundraise for – with no targets or deadlines, and no cost to those charities.
