About Mount Snowdon

At 1,085 meters above sea level, not only is Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales, it is also the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands.

The rocks that formed Snowdon were produced by volcanoes over 400 million years ago. The mountain now sees over 350,000 walkers reaching its summit every year. The mountain was even used by Edmund Hillary in training for the 1953 ascent of Mount Everest.


Feeding the people of the Blessed Lands

The suffering in Yemen and Syria weighed heavy on our hearts over Eid. As we gathered with family and friends to celebrate, it was hard to forget the struggles of our brothers and sisters during one of the most blessed times in the year.

The ongoing conflict in Yemen has devastated the people of this blessed land, leading to the worst man-made humanitarian crisis of our time [UN]. Your ongoing support ensures that our teams can reach families across Yemen with life-saving relief. We are running five bread factories feeding some of the most vulnerable people in Aden, Ma'rib and Seiyun,

After 11 years of conflict, Syrian families are also struggling to get by. Alhamdulillah, our bread factory in Afrin (northern Syria) is producing over 50,000 loaves and feeding thousands of people every day.

By participating in the Snowdon Challenge, your fundraising efforts will provide life-saving food for families in Yemen and Syria, who have lost everything.

Q. Who can take part in the Snowdon Challenge?

A. The Snowdon Challenge is open to anyone who is fit and able to walk. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Q. What are the registration requirements?

A. You must complete the registration form and complete the registration fee payment of £40 to secure your space.
Once your space is secured, your target will be to fundraise a minimum of £350. However, we are hoping that our enthusiastic fundraisers aim for a more pioneering individual target.

Q. What should I wear?

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

We advise the following: walking/hiking boots, trekking stick (especially for the descent), wind/waterproof jacket, thick socks, ruck sack, a pair 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 day.
A meal will be provided upon completion. It is advisable that you ensure your mobile phone is fully charged, in case we need to contact you.

Q. Are the walking routes difficult?

A. We will be climbing the Llanberis Track as this is the easiest, having a steady incline but not quite the shortest path. The path is well sign posted from the parking area and follows a track for 10 miles up until the summit.
