Autism Together Skydive

Snowdon Moonlight Trek!

SATURDAY, 14TH SEPTEMBER @ SNOWDON

On Saturday, 14th September we will be trekking up Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales at dusk to witness a breath-taking sunset from the summit and we would love for you to join us! This is Autism Together’s Get Active for Autism challenge in 2024; a perfect trek for beginners with a good level of fitness.

The guided trek will take approximately 7-8 hours covering just over 9 miles of terrain; taking place in the early afternoon, you will reach the summit at a quieter time to enjoy the sunset before walking back down in the dark… head torches at the ready!

This is a guided trek with an experience mountain leader looking after our Autism Together team; gather your friends and family or even a team of colleagues, to show your support for Autism Acceptance this year.

There is a registration fee of £37 per person and we ask that you fundraise a minimum of £100pp by the day of the trek through sponsorship. Our Fundraising team will be on hand to help you achieve this goal.

Please fill in this form to request your registration pack and reserve your place today.

FAQ

1. Is the trek suitable for beginners?

Yes for those with a good level of fitness; Mountain Walks team will send you a training plan so your well prepared.

2. What if there is bad weather?

We still go up! We have absolutely no control over the weather, but we will still be taking part in the challenge unless it is deemed too dangerous to do so. Seeing the sunset is a bonus, but this is dependent on the conditions at the top. The main objective is to climb Snowdon at its quietest and descend in the dark.

3. What equipment do I need?

You will need your own headtorch and you will be sent a full-kit list of what you need to bring and wear.

4. What route will we be taking?

The Snowdon Moonlight Trek will start and finish in Llanberis which is in the Snowdon National Park, North Wales. Our meeting point will be Snowdon Mountain Railway. We will be using the Llanberis path and hopefully reaching the summit just before sunset!

5. How long does the Trek take?

We will be doing a total of 9.2 miles at an ascent of 970 metres – this should take us around 7-8 hours in total for the round trip. We will be setting off around 3:30pm (times to be confirmed). It is recommended to book somewhere to stay in Llanberis or the surrounding villages if you didn’t want to travel home afterwards.
