How to enter the The Snowdonia Challenge
- Bike 20mi
The Snowdonia Challenge route
All participants will pay an initial deposit of £195 per team of four, before either self-funding the full £700 cost per team of four or raising a minimum of £1,500 per team of four for a charity of their choice. See below for more information.Teams meet early at the challenge base in Llanberis and kick off for a stunning cycle to the foot of Mount Snowdon. This 20-mile route is clearly signposted and marshalled and will feature some steep climbs.
Next, you swap bikes for boots and conquer Snowdon via the Rhyd Ddu trail. This climb is as scenic as it is challenging and in clear weather, you can even see Ireland across the sea.
Descending the mountain, you’re back on your bikes to cycle another 10 miles to Llyn Gwynant. Teams now head towards the buoy-marked course for a quick briefing before canoeing the course on a still, freshwater lake. No canoeing experience is needed.
Following the canoe course, participants will mount their bikes for a final 10-mile push to summit Pen Y Pas and a hair-raising descent back into Llanberis.
The two funding options for the event are as follows:
Upon registration, each team of 4 will pay the non-refundable registration fee of £195 which is used to secure your spot. You then have until 6 weeks before the event to pay the event cost of £700 per team. You can then choose to fundraise as much as you would like with no minimum target.
Participants will pay the non-refundable registration fee of £195 per team of 4 upon registration. This is used to secure your spot on the adventure. You then will raise a minimum amount of £1,500 per team of 4 for your chosen charity.
In order to be confirmed for the event, your team must have £1,000 of the funds 6 weeks before the challenge. Providing you have raised £1,000 6 weeks before the challenge, the charity you have chosen will pay the £700 challenge cost on your behalf. Your team then has until one month after the challenge to raise the remaining £500 for your charity.
*Please note that not all charities are happy to commit to the minimum sponsorship option. If you choose this option, Dream Challenges will contact the charity you want to support on your behalf and explain the process to them. If they are not happy with the minimum sponsorship option, you will be notified as soon as possible, so you can choose whether to self fund for the same charity or choose another charity to fundraise for.
