10 Peaks. 10 Hours. 10 June.

10P 2017 FB

2017 10 Peaks Challenge COMPLETE!

 

On 10 th June a record 18 teams braved the driving rain and howling winds of the Brecons to take on the 2017 10 Peaks Challenge.

A world away from a normal day at the office, the course tested the teams’ resilience as well as their kit. But as they poured the water from their boots, the sense of achievement was palpable and everyone finished with a smile on their face!

Our heartfelt thanks go to everyone who took part and to the businesses who underwrote the costs, meaning that all the sponsorship money can go where it is most needed, the young people.

In total, the teams have pledged £36,300 in sponsorship, enough to fund 11 places on our programme for vulnerable young people, a fantastic result!

 

 Register your team for 2018.

 

A Rough Outline

On Saturday 9 June 2018 we weill be asking teams to complete another mountain challenge - 10 peaks in 10 hours in the Brecon Beacons - we can't promise sunshine (it's Wales after all) but we can promise glorious scenery and a rewarding experience we are sure you will enjoy.

Teams

We recommend teams of 4-6 people but no less than four so that no-one is left alone at any point. You will need to ensure that two members can navigate with a map and compass and the whole team must finish together. You will be timed and yes there are prizes!

Accommodation

Our Event Registration and Briefing and the Saturday night ‘After-party’ will be held in a local hotel. Once your team has registered we will send you a list of local accommodation with some specially negotiated discounts for challenge participants.

Fundraising

We do not charge an entry fee but we do ask all teams to commit to raise £1,500 for the Youth Adventure Trust. But don't worry - we are here to help you!  Once you have registered your team, we will give you a call to chat about your fundraising plans and there is loads of advice in the challenge handbook.

We're here for you

The Youth Adventure Trust team are here for you every step of the way. Whether its advice on training, fundraising or equipment please do not hesitate to get in touch. We provide a challenge handbook and lots of helpful documents downloadable from our website but we are also just a phone call or email away if you want to talk anything through.

If you want to chat to us before you register your team then please feel free to get in touch with Louisa Oldfield who would be happy to help.

Don't just take our word for it!

The 10 Peaks Challenge is a fantastic event, a rewarding challenge and a great opportunity to push your personal limits.  But don't just take our word for it, here's a few things previous participants have said about it...

"Thank you so much for such a wonderful event – honestly one of the most enjoyable days I’ve had; flawlessly organised and even the weather was pretty perfect for a walk like that (apart from the fog at the top of Pen y Fan you guys really need to sort that for next year….)." 

Sophie, Great Western Railway

"We had a fantastic time on the trek, really enjoyable and so well organised. The final ascent was painful but such a good feeling to reach the top knowing it was all downhill to the finish!"

 Hadyn, BLB Kilminster Beer LLB

"I'd like to say thank you! Thank you for organising the event, thank you for everything you do for the charity, but most importantly thank you for your support this weekend. You and your team are incredible. At each checkpoint we were reminded of how well we were doing and how proud they were of us. It really gave us the boost we needed to keep going."

Katie, Cotswold Outdoor
