An event in which participants attempt to climb the highest mountains of England (Scafell Pike), Scotland (Ben Nevis) and Wales (Snowdon) within 24 hours. It is frequently used to raise money for charitable organisations. Walkers climb each peak in turn, and are driven from the foot of one mountain to the next. The total distance walked is estimated at 42 kilometres (26 miles) to 44 km (27 miles), with a total ascent of 9,800 feet (3,000 m).

Three Peaks Challenge 2018 | My Instagram Story
Watch Anthony Mayatt, Lifestyle Coach and Personal Trainer take on the 3 peaks through his Instagram Story. It was one of his dreams to complete this challenge and if it’s one of yours as well, this video is great motivation. In his own words: “As it was such a tough challenge, you didn’t really get a chance to stop and take pictures so had to be quick on the go. I uploaded my Instagram stories on the bus between climbs and saved the whole thing. Maybe this isn’t the video you were expecting when clicking a three peaks video but hopefully gives you an insight into what you are getting if you ever attempt it. Apologies for the swearing and hope you enjoy“. Follow Anthony on Instagram at breathefitnessuk.
