New for 2020, the Snowdon24 will be the ultimate endurance event.
Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa, is the highest mountain in England and Wales and peaks at an impressive 1,085 m (3,560 feet). Starting and finishing at the foot of this iconic mountain, you will be challenged either as an individual, or part of a team to ascend and descend Snowdon as many times as possible in 24 hours.
Based in Llanberis village the route will take you up and down the Llanberis Path; a 15km out and back route taking you past the legendary Half Way House, Allt Moses, Clogwyn Bridge and ultimately on to the summit before heading back down.
The event will consist of the following categories:
- Solo entry
- Pair entry
- Team Entry (max of 5 participants)
The challenge is to complete as many ascents and descents as possible within the 24 hour period. The winners of the event will be the athletes who complete as many of these as possible. In the event of a tiebreak on the number of ascents and descents the quickest will win!
To add to the excitement we will be awarding individuals and teams with the following classifications:
- 3 times ascend and descend – Snowdon Triple Award
- 5 times or more ascend and descend – Mont Blanc Award
- 7 times or more ascend and descend – Kilimanjaro Award
- 10 times or more ascend and descend – the ultimate Everest Award!
As with all Always Aim High Events it will be set in a supportive and friendly environment, what better way to take on this ultimate challenge?!
