Unfortunately, the National 3 Peaks Challenge is out of reach of most of us, let alone doing it with the family.
It’s not just the effort of the 3 mountains to climb, but it’s also the logistics of driving up, down, and across the country within 24 hours.
However, there is a similar challenge that is within reach of most of us: doing a Local 3 Peaks Challenge.
within reach of most of us… a Local 3 Peaks Challenge
Just like the official Three Peaks Challenge, you have 24 hours to climb three peaks. However, as the name implies, these are 3 peaks that are local to you.
Depending on where you live, this may be more or less of a challenge.
Some parts of the country are quite flat, so you might not be climbing high, but at the same time, the route to the peak could be long.
Nevertheless, it’s a good challenge to get the family out hiking.

We gave it a go on our local three highest summits in Shropshire. We took it on in Winter and the weather conditions added to the challenge 🙂
