Atkins 100 Challenge 2017

 Friday 6th - Sunday 8th October - Snowdonia National Park

The Atkins 100 Challenge is back!  As in previous years the challenge will include road biking, hiking and some "crystal maze" style challenges along the way.  Everyone can take part as participants can choose which element they want to undertake

There will be three different routes for the biking - the bronze, silver and for those seeking a big challenge, the gold will test the fittest of the fit!  

The hike will be a circular route up to the top of Snowdon, the highest point in England and Wales with spectacular views (fingers crossed for clear skies though).  The route is just over 15km and will take between 3.5 and 5.5 hours to complete

In addition participants will also be tasked with solving the Crystal Maze Challenges along the route.  This will be an opportunity to test skill, mental and physical ability.

Teams will be timed for all elements of the challenge - the bike, the hike, the crystal maze AND the fundraising challenge.

  • Teams need to travel up on Friday 6th October
  • The challenge begins on Saturday 7th in the morning


  • Challenge Base: Pen Y Pass YHA, Pen-y-Pass, Nantgwynant, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, LL55 4NY


  • £1,500 team target
