The Snowdon Climb begins at Pen Y Pass and participants have the option of taking the Pyg or the Miners Track up to the summit of the tallest mountain in England and Wales. Both routes provide you with incredible views of the surrounding lakes and hills as you ascend to your glory of reaching the summit. The descent takes you alongside the Snowdon Railway steam train, leading you back into lovely Llanberis to the finish line.
Each participant is required to pay an entry fee of £35 and we ask that you set yourself a minimum target of £250 to support prostate cancer research.
Every participant receives a t-shirt, snacks, water, route maps along with the support of designated safety marshals. Transport is provided to the start of each challenge. On top of that, you receive training and fundraising support from our events team.
For Snowdonia for Science, you have the choice of two tracks when tackling the Snowdon climb.
The two routes you can choose from are:
Miner’s Track – Here is the link to the official Snowdonia National Park route map.
The Miners’ Track starts from the Pen y Pass car park on a wide and even track, climbing gradually becoming a hard climb towards the intersection of the Miners’ and the Pyg Tracks.
Pyg Track – Here is the link to the official Snowdonia National Park route map.
The Pyg Track is a popular path, its rugged nature and the stunning mountain scenery, all along its route to the summit, will maintain your interest throughout.
Both routes will use the Llanberis path for descent back to base.
