BNP Paribas Real Estate 5 Peaks Challenge!


This is a fantastic full on challenge for those that are tough enough to take on more than “just” the National 3 Peaks in 24hrs! You sleep on the minibus and ferry!

The National 3 Peaks in reverse, Snowdon, Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis followed by Slieve Donard in Northern Ireland finishing on Carrauntoohil in the Republic of Ireland.

This is a full on "Blue Chip" Challenge encompassing hundreds of miles of road travel over five different countries and over 4800 metres of climbing (and the same amount of descent) It is a magnificent challenge but not for the feint hearted. The event is open to all but training WILL be required!

The trip includes accommodation for two nights, the night before the challenge in a hotel near Snowdon and the final night so you can celebrate your achievement! All transport from an agreed location to Snowdon, travel in an MPV between the mountains, return ferry crossings and transport back to an agreed location after the event.

You can undertake this event on a totally bespoke basis with 7 or more participants and can choose your own start / finish locations (ie start Slieve Donard finish Ben Nevis) drop us a line for further information (martyn@advocateevents.co.uk). You can choose your date!!
