MS Research and Relief Fund's Snowdon Challenge 2019 will see teams working together to push, pull and carry a person with MS from the base to the summit of Mount Snowdon and back again. This challenge will involve working as a team to climb Wales’ largest mountain, navigating rocky paths and increasing altitude alongside a specially adapted wheelchair, experiencing stunning views and landscapes along the way.

The event will see teams tackle Wales' tallest mountain via the Llanberis path, marching from base to summit and back down again before returning to the campsite for a celebration dinner and prize giving.

Participating teams must have between 12-15 people plus one person in a wheelchair. The entry fee is £75 per person and all entrants will be asked to raise a minimum of £200 in sponsorship.

All money raised will go directly towards the services offered by MS Research and Relief Fund – providing relief to people with Multiple Sclerosis and their carers in the North East.


The climb is approximately 8 miles from bottom the bottom of the mountain to summit and back down again. The route used will be the Llanberis path - any changes to this are at the discretion of mountain safety experts.

Costs for the event will be:

  • £75 registration fee
  • Minimum sponsorship £200 per person

Entry fee for the challenge includes:

  • Safety of experienced guides on the mountain during the event (Up4It Outdoors)

  • Event t-shirt
  • Full support and help from a dedicated member of MS Research and Relief Fund’s fundraising team in the build up to the event

All funds raised will go directly to improving the lives of local people affected by MS.
