Kick-start your summer with a 9 mile sponsored walk to the summit of Snowdon. This is an opportunity to climb Snowdon and see Snowdonia like never before as you watch the sun set on the summit.
The walk begins in the early evening, aiming to reach the top of Snowdon via the Llanberis Path just before sunset. The pace is very relaxed and, after enjoying this spectacular sight, we switch on our head torches and begin the descent back down in the dark.
We suggest that all walkers aim to raise at least £100. Your entry fee goes towards the cost of organising the walk, but by raising £100 in sponsorship, you can make a huge difference to the lives of people with Parkinson’s.
Age restrictions: You must be 10 years or older to take part.
Under 18s should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Fitness: A good level of fitness with prior training is required to take part in this challenge.
Dogs: We discourage dogs from this walk, however, if you do bring your dog, they must be on a lead at all times.
Toilets: Available at the registration point and at the summit of Snowdon.
Parking: Free parking is available at The Royal Victoria Hotel or if this is full, at a Car Park nearby which costs £4 per day.
Marshals: This challenge is self-led. You’ll be provided with direction on where to walk and there will be a team of mountain guides along the route to provide assistance and check you're staying on course at all times.
Walk packs: Your walk T-shirt and fundraising pack will be sent soon after your registration and your number and on-the-day information will be sent the week prior to the walk.
What you'll receive
- A Walk for Parkinson's T-shirt
- Fundraising advice, including a fundraising pack
