10 Peaks, 10 Hours – is your team up to the challenge?

By Nick Batten on 26 February, 2021

Now that the days are getting longer, the first signs of spring are showing, and the outdoors is calling, it’s time to dust off the walking boots and make the most of lockdown 3 by signing up for the Youth Adventure Trust’s 10 Peaks challenge.

If you are looking for a team-building day with a difference, fancy a challenging day outside with a group of friends (all within the Covid guidelines and regulations) or want to raise funds to help vulnerable young people face the challenges in their lives, then this is the challenge for you.

On Saturday 10th July 2021, teams of between four and six people will don their walking boots, set their compasses and trek an amazing route through the Brecon Beacons National Park, covering 34km and 10 different peaks, including the iconic Pen y Fan, in a target time of 10 hours.

The event is being sponsored by Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports, who are covering the costs, meaning that there is no entry fee.

However, teams are asked to raise funds to support the Youth Adventure Trust. All participants will receive a 15% discount voucher to spend online or in-store at Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports.

The Youth Adventure Trust is a registered charity that helps vulnerable young people, aged 11 – 16, build resilience, develop confidence and learn the skills to face the challenges in their lives and make positive choices.

All of the funds raised go towards supporting vulnerable young people through these challenging times. The 10 Peaks Challenge is now in its 12th year and has raised over £125,000 to support vulnerable youngsters.

Alex, a participant on the 2020 10 Peaks Challenge, said, “On behalf of all of the participants from T H White, and our families, thank you so much for your efforts and determination in going ahead with the event despite COVID-19. There is a real sense of achievement in the teams.

“The whole event was tremendously well organised from start to finish; the staff and volunteers were just so welcoming, happy and helpful.”
