Snowdon Sunrise for Seth is a fundraising challenge to raise £12500 for a little boys life-changing operation.
This is a PRIVATE challenge.
Seth’s team will trek to the top of Snowdon to enjoy the start of a brand new day with views across the mountains of Snowdonia and coast from Wales’ highest mountain.
Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa to use its Welsh name, stands at 1085 metres and is the highest mountain in Wales (and higher than any in England). Its rugged beauty attracts people from all over the world. Views from the summit have been voted the best views in the UK.
During daylight hours Snowdon is a wonderful challenge. Taking it on in the dark brings a whole new adventure in itself.

We want everyone to enjoy their challenge and reach the summit in their own time so will walk at a pace suitable for the whole group. It is important that the group stays together with the leader/s. Depending on numbers taking part groups may be split into smaller groups of similar pace and ability.
