Snowdon challenge

Calling all Team St Ann’s mountaineers!

September 28, 2019

We’re delighted to bring you a brand new Team St Ann’s challenge – conquering Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. If you enjoy exploring and are itching for the opportunity to lace up your boots, conquer a Peak and complete a fundraising challenge for St Ann’s then this is the one for you!

Date: Saturday 28th September 2019

Approximate time to complete the challenge: 5 – 5.5 hours

Route: If you take on our nine-mile Snowdon trek, you’ll navigate up a winding route to the summit. Be prepared for a steady climb on a mixture of rough and well-kept pathways. At 1,085m (3,560ft), you’ll be able to admire the breath-taking views of the Snowdonia National Park at your feet with Anglesey and the Irish Sea in the distance.

Fitness: To take on this challenge you’ll need to be reasonably fit and do some training.

Transport: We are currently investigating providing transport to and from the Heald Green hospice to Snowdon – please contact events@sah.org.uk for further details.

Cost

  • Registration fee (due on sign up): £30
  • Minimum sponsorship target (due before the event): £300 – this will go towards funding three specialist rehabilitation sessions to help patients maximise their mobility and independence. By taking on Wales’ highest mountain, you’re helping us to provide care and support for thousands of people with life-limiting illnesses every year.
