Challenge yourself to complete the famous Three Peaks Challenge in 2019 to raise valuable funds for the Professional Cricketers’ Trust and Tom Maynard Trust.

Brace yourself for a physically challenging adventure, as you take on the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales. Considered one of Britain’s toughest outdoor challenges, the National 3 Peaks Challenge takes in the dizzy heights of Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m).

Over the course of three days, you will embark on a 26-mile trek and ascend to a total height of almost 3,000m. A difficult challenge, the Three Peaks requires a good level of fitness, as well as plenty of grit and determination.

As we aim to complete the Three Peaks over the course of three days will have plenty of time to meet the other walkers, hear their reasons for taking part and build some real team camaraderie over the course of the challenge.

Throughout the challenge you will be supporting both the Professional Cricketers’ Trust and The Tom Maynard Trust.

The Professional Cricketers’ Trust, previously the PCA Benevolent Fund, was designed to support the lifelong health and wellbeing of all PCA members and their immediate families.
