Dan Jenkins took on this challenge with a difference. Billed as the ultimate endurance race and brought together by “Always Aim High” events. The aim, to take on the mighty mount Snowdon. Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa, is the highest mountain in England and Wales and peaks at an impressive 1,085 m (3,560 feet).
Starting and finishing at the foot of this iconic mountain, you will be challenged either as an individual, or part of a team to ascend and descend Snowdon as many times as possible in 24 hours.
Categories for solo runners, pair relay and team (up to 5) relay. Pair and team entries receive one timing chip, meaning only one person will be running at one time.
Always Aim High Events are incredibly proud to announce that North West Cancer Research will be a direct charity partner for the inaugural Snowdon24 event. North West Cancer Research is an independent charity dedicated to putting our region’s cancer needs first, funding pioneering research and education to tackle the cause, improve the care and find the cure for cancer. In ever true style, Dan ascended and descended this brute no less than 3 times within an approximate 8 hour period. Taking this challenge on as an individual, Dan exercised his perogative and in his own words “got bored so decided to stop doing it and went to the pup to watch the rugby 🏉 instead” 🤣 Still no mean feat. As Dan completed the minimum required amount of ascents/descents he qualified for medal made from the infamous local quarried slate. Awesome effort Dan, well done!
