The Sunrise Snowdon Challenge

Snowdonia is one of the most breathtaking natural landscapes on the British Isles. Unfortunately, on the way up you won’t be seeing much of it. We’re giving 35 diehard volunteers the chance to push themselves beyond all limits and summit Snowdon in the dark in time for a stunning sunrise, all to raise money for our Orphan Sponsorship Appeal. Tough enough? Are you up to the task? Are you ready to really challenge yourself? Sign up today.

More about the challenge

Simply mentioning the name ‘Snowdonia’ is enough to conjure up a vivid image in the minds of most hikers. This rugged and windswept region in North Wales is famous the world over for its stunning landscapes, plunging valleys, craggy ridges and breathtaking moorland, all of which is a hiker’s paradise. Snowdonia draws thousands of hikers in peak season, but there are all sorts of routes across its vast expanse.

This time however, you’re going to be doing it in the dark. The whole point of the Sunrise Snowdon Challenge is not to hike during sunrise, but hike in the pitch black so you can experience the majesty of a Snowdonian sunrise from the very summit of the mountain. That’s why we’re only asking for the hardiest, toughest and most diehard volunteers. Are you up to the challenge?

Why hike with Human Appeal?

We’re veterans at this sort of thing. As part of the Human Appeal Family you will receive the absolute best support and guidance. Our qualified and experienced assistants will take you via a safe route to the summit and there will also be a dedicated team to advise and help you reach your sponsorship target as well as offering training and gear advice.

We’ll be in touch in the lead up to the race with plans, FAQs and anything you need to know about safety measures.
