We know you business owners and entrepreneurs just love challenges. We have compiled an extreme event for you. 5 peaks in 55 hours, come and have a ‘try’ if you think you’re hard enough!!! You’re a successful entrepreneur right, then there is no reason not to test yourself physically.
Teams of four (3 climbers and 1 driver) will assemble early on Thursday morning at the Legacy Royal Victoria in Llanberis for their team briefing and registration before they start their ascent of Snowdon (3,560ft). Once Snowdon has been conquered teams will make their way up North to the Lake District and on Thursday afternoon the short but sharp climb up Helvellyn (3,120ft) will begin. After the second peak has been achieved teams are invited to make their way to the local cricket club where they can have a quick shower and BBQ, before the gruelling drive to Ben Nevis (4,409).
Thrill Seeking Entrepreneur Challenge
In the small hours of Friday morning teams will begin the trek up The Ben, giving the team driver a chance to catch up on some sleep. Once mountain number three has been climbed, our plucky climbers will travel to Cairnryan where they will board the ferry to Belfast. Here teams will get to experience our new addition to the ‘peak’ family Slieve Donard, at 2,790ft this is the baby of the challenge, but being peak number four will not prove an easy climb to everyone! After the climb, teams and drivers will take advantage of a much needed pit-stop before the final leg of the journey to Carrauntoohil (3,406ft). Saturday morning sees the teams begin their ultimate climb, the views from the top are well worth the blood, sweat and tears and teams will be welcomed back down to the smell of bacon sandwiches and Guinness!
This epic challenge finishes at The Dunloe Hotel, where teams are invited to join us for an evening of celebration and ceilidh dancing, before departing on Sunday morning to Dublin for the ferry home.
Teams who are unable to join us for the whole five peaks can have the opportunity to join us for a three peaks challenge on Mainland Britain (Snowdon, Helvellyn & Ben Nevis or for a two peaks challenge in Northern and The Republic of Ireland (Slieve Donard and Carrauntoohil)
