Three Peaks Challenge by Rail
The only event that does the Three Peaks by train! Climb the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales with a special train taking you to each.
An action packed challenge for teams of four
This year, the train will depart from Crewe on Thursday evening and travel to Snowdon, which we will climb overnight.
We will then head for Ravenglass to climb Scafell Pike, before a night on the train up to Fort William to climb the UK's highest mountain, Ben Nevis.
It's then time for a well-deserved glass of bubbly on the journey home when the party begins!
Enjoy the beautiful views as we travel through the beautiful Scottish Highlands and bask in the glory of having completed an amazing personal challenge!
This challenge is for teams of four. The registration fee and minimum sponsorship pledge are per team.
Your chance to be champions
This year, rail industry teams taking on the Porterbrook Three Peaks by Rail challenge have an extra opportunity for glory. Adding a competitive edge we’ve introduced an award for the top fundraising team within the TOCs and FOCs category, another for the supply chain sector and one for the infrastructure business that bring in the most. Not only that, we’ll award a trophy to the best overall fundraising from any team! Sign up, get those sponsors rolling in and prove yourselves industry champions in 2020!
Some people estimate this is probably the equivalent of three half marathons on quite difficult terrain and of course there is little prospect of much sleep during the event.
You will spend the first night climbing Snowdon and the second night sitting up on a train. We recommend you try to grab a few hours whenever you can!
Food and drink
You will be provided with all meals on board the train as well as a plentiful supply of water for the mountains and lots of snacks!
First aiders will be available to help out with any minor problems. There will also be doctors on board for the more serious ailments. For your physical and mental wellbeing we will be accompanied by masseuses who will, for a small charge, provide sports massages.
