Thank you so much for your interest in our 3 Peaks Challenge
Wiltshire’s Air Ambulance was established in April 1990. Since its launch, the Air Ambulance has attended thousands of incidents, providing an essential emergency medical service throughout the County. Wiltshire Air Ambulance is entirely dependent public support has to raise over £700,000 each year to cover a third of the running costs of the helicopter. WAA receives NO government funding but relies on the generosity of the businesses and people of Wiltshire to support our fundraising needs.
Everyone in Wiltshire has a stake in the Wiltshire Air Ambulance. It is an essential service that serves all the people of Wiltshire what ever your age or gender. We fly 19hours, 365 days of the year and are there for those life and death situations where the speed of the helicopter and the skill of the crew play a major part in the outcome of the patient.
WAA has the ability to take the seriously injured to the most appropriate hospital, quickly and safely and it can reach any part of Wiltshire within 12 minutes.
This brilliant challenge is for anyone wanting a challenge that doesn’t take too many days to complete! It’s also one of the most cost effective challenges we could pull together asking you to raise £700.00, of which £435.00 comes to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
Here’s some information on the 3 Peaks Challenge
The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the 3 highest mountains in Scotland, England & Wales within 24 hours. Despite the growing popularity of this challenge, the three peaks challenge should not be underestimated and the difficulty involved.
We travel up from Snowdonia to Fort William, where you can join us in the minibus or you can fly to Glasgow on Saturday morning where you will be met by your leader and taken to the start of the challenge. All travel arrangements and pick ups are flexible within reason. We can also provide a pick up service en route from North Wales to Fort William if you live along the way. Please contact us for details.
The 3 peaks challenge starts on Saturday morning travelling from Glasgow to Fort William before climbing Ben Nevis (1344m) the highest mountain in the UK. Once on the summit you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Scottish Highlands before making your descent back to the minibus and starting the overnight journey to the Lake District.
Scafell Pike (978m), the highest mountain in England, is next and head torches are needed here as we climb in the early hours of the morning with the aim of reaching the summit for sunrise.
The final challenge takes on the highest mountain in Wales, Snowdon (1085m). Once on the summit there will be time for a quick photo before making the descent down to Llanberis.
