Sunrise Snowdon Challenge
Join us for on of our Sunrise Snowdon Challenges in 2023!
Mount Snowdon, Wales
Join University Hospitals Birmingham Charity for one of our Sunrise Snowdon walks in 2022!
This amazing event gives you the chance to climb the highest mountain in England & Wales - Mount Snowdon - overnight, to raise money for a ward or department of your choice at your local hospital.
We will be setting off from Birmingham and travelling to Mount Snowdon via coach, arriving at the mountain shortly after midnight. We will then meet up with the professional guides who will accompany us every step of the way as we make our way up Mount Snowdon!
We will reach the summit in time for the sunrise, before returning back down the mountain and taking the coach back to Birmingham.
Places for these challenges cost £50 and there is a minimum sponsorship requirement of £200.
You will also receive a free Charity hoodie of your choice at the end of the event.
