The Snowdonia Challenge is a brand new and unique event coming to North Wales in 2017. The only event of its kind in the UK!

Not for the faint hearted, to take on the full challenge you will need commitment and determination to prepare for and complete this event.

Snowdonia Challenge is a test of mental and physical resilience and team work and will take you on a journey of self discovery. It is inspired by multi-day challenges used as military training events in Europe.
