Full Moon Challenge – Snowdon – in aid of Marie Curie
Date/Time: 08/07/2017, 2:00 am - 9:30 am Location: Snowdon, Llanberis
Trek to the summit of Snowdon by the light of the full-moon and stand at 1085 metres in time to enjoy an amazing sunrise across Snowdonia’s beautiful and rugged landscape.
You will set off in the early hours of the morning along the Llanberis Path. This popular daytime trek along what is considered to be the easiest of the 6 main routes up Snowdon presents a whole new challenge with only the moon and the stars (and the glow of your head torches) to light the way.
Join Einir and a group of dedicated fundraisers on the challenge of a lifetime, making memories and new friends along the way.
Fingers crossed for a clear night so we can also enjoy the starry sky which has recently seen Snowdonia declared an ‘International Dark Sky Reserve’; one of only four places in the UK awarded the status for the quality of its night sky.
Distance: 9 miles
Time: 5-7 hours
Elevation gain: 945 metres
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the weather or a clear enough sky to see the moon and the stars!
This is a fundraising event on behalf of Marie Curie.
£10 from each entry will go to the charity. There is no minimum fundraising amount, however, Einir has set her target to jointly raise a minimum of £2,500 so please help by raising as much as you can.
