People encouraged to take part in Snowden challenge

First published in News

PEOPLE are being asked to push themselves to their limits in a multi-activity challenge in Snowdonia to raise funds for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

The two-day challenge will involve a combination of cycling 17km around Mount Snowdon, trekking 15km to the summit and finally canoeing 4km across Llyn Padarn to the finish line.

The challenge will be led by trekking and challenge event specialists, Adventurous Ewe, with a challenge leader, full support team, back-up vehicles and one night’s accommodation.

And there’ll be plenty of support and fundraising ideas available online from Wiltshire Air Ambulance’s charity team.

“You can do this challenge individually or as part of a 10-strong team,” said Claire Kelly, head of events and charity services for Wiltshire Air Ambulance. “You will need a good level of fitness to take on the challenge as you will feel physically and mentally tired.”

The Snowdon Challenge will take place on May 3, June 6 and September 19 and costs £200 plus a minimum of £300 in sponsorship per person, a total cost of £500.
