The National Three Peaks Challenge gives participants the opportunity to try and climb the highest mountains of Scotland, England and Wales. Walkers climb each peak in turn, and are driven from the foot of one mountain to the next.

The three peaks are:
• Ben Nevis (1,344 m or 4,409 ft), the highest mountain in Scotland
• Scafell Pike (978 m or 3,209 ft), the highest mountain in England
• Snowdon (1,085 m or 3,560 ft), the highest mountain in Wales

The total distance walked is estimated at 42 kilometres (26 mi) or 44 km (27 mi), with a total ascent of 3,000 metres.


At Muslim Hands we know that the long term effects of hunger run deep and can cripple whole communities. Endemic malnutrition leads to poor health and increased school drop-out rates. This in turn leads to continued poverty and the vicious cycle continues from one generation to the next.

We are currently providing over 11,000 meals a day, but there is much more to be done. With your generous support, we can reach even more children with the support they need to keep them strong and healthy through their daily lives.

Q. Who can take part in this Challenge?

A. The Three Peaks Challenge is open to anyone who is 18 years of age and above.

In addition, a requirement for this challenge is that all participants must have climbed at least one of the three mountains previously.

Q. How can I register and much money do I have to raise to qualify?

A. You can register by clicking on the 'Register' button at the top of the webpage.
Once you have registered, please pay the registration fee of £25 to secure your place. This can be paid online or calling our Donations Line on 0115 911 7222 (open 9am-8pm, Mon-Fri).

Please note a minimum of £1000 has to be fundraised. However, we are hoping that our enthusiastic fundraisers aim for a more pioneering individual target.

Q. What should I wear?

A. The following must be sufficient for 3 days.

Please dress in your warmest clothes, with optional layers that are easy to put on and take off. Temperatures can differ, but the higher you get the colder it will become. Please ensure your footwear is comfortable and weatherproof.

We advise the following: walking/hiking boots, trekking stick (especially for the descent), wind/waterproof jacket, thick socks, ruck sack, 3 pairs of extra socks, hiking trousers (avoid jeans as they do not dry quickly, should it rain), spare jumper, gloves, a watch and a sunhat/sunglasses.

Q. What should I bring?

A. A bottle of water is recommended. Snacks, such as fruit, will be provided on the coaches. However, we strongly recommend you bring extra snacks to last throughout the 3 days.

On completion of each mountain, we will provide a cold meal. It is advisable that you ensure your mobile phone is fully charged, in case we need to contact you at any stage.

Q. Are the walking routes difficult?

A. This will be by far one of the hardest challenges you take on, yet the sense of achievement once you complete ALL three mountains will not be rivalled.

A truly once in a life time experience. We start the trek at Ben Nevis, Scotland following on to Scafell Pike, England and lastly Snowdon, Wales.



If you have any questions or would like further information please contact us.
