Are you ready for an unforgettable charity hike this autumn?

Embark on an extraordinary journey to conquer the highest peak in South Wales while supporting the first aid charity for Wales.

As you climb Pen y Fan under the cover of night on our charity hike, anticipate the breathtaking moment when you reach the summit just as the sun begins to rise, revealing stunning panoramic views of Bannau Brycheiniog National Park. The ascent follows a winding path up a large grassy slope to the immense 886 metre summit. On a clear day the views before you should stretch as far as south Shropshire, Swansea Bay and even the Bristol Channel. Pen y Fan shares its majestic summit area with Corn Du, standing proudly at 873 meters, collectively known as Cadair Arthur. Upon crossing the ridge, your return journey leads you across the Blaen Taf Fawr river and through picturesque woodland paths.

Cap off this remarkable charity hike experience with a celebratory breakfast bap and hot drink, included in your registration fee. Throughout the adventure, you'll be accompanied by seasoned local Mountain Leaders, eager to share their expertise and encouragement every step of the way.

To support our lifesaving work we ask that you raise a minimum sponsorship of £195. Your support means we can continue to provide first aid cover during events, deliver frontline services and give vital support to our NHS and emergency services, whilst training children and adults in first aid; giving them the skills and confidence they need to save a life.
