• Challenge Overview

    On Saturday 6th July 2024, you and your team will take on the challenge of completing either 6 peaks or 10 peaks in the Brecon Beacons.  We can’t promise sunshine (it’s Wales after all) but we can promise glorious scenery and a rewarding experience we are sure you will enjoy.

    The challenge is no walk in the park (!) and you will need to be prepared. But when it’s over you will have a huge sense of achievement, both in knowing you have succeeded in completing the challenge but also that you will have raised funds for the Youth Adventure Trust’s work with vulnerable young people.
