Snowdon Sunrise Challenge

Snowdon sunrise

Snowdon – A popular summit trek by day-time, it forms a real challenge by night.

Standing at the summit by moonlight will be an unforgettable experience, as will seeing the sunrise from the mountain slopes as we descend. Witnessing the spectacular landscapes opening up before us as the day grows lighter is a magical and unforgettable experience.

In partnership with Sky Blue Adventures, the Snowdon Sunrise Challenge is undoubtedly a very popular charity event. If you are seeking to create a real buzz, while smashing your fundraising targets then this could be the event for you.

This highly popular challenge involves trekking to the summit of Snowdon via the Llanberis Pass. The Llanberis Path is the longest and most gradual of the six main paths to the summit of Snowdon, and offers fantastic views of Cwm Brwynog, Llanberis and over the Menai straights towards Anglesey.

If you are moderately fit, climbing Snowdon is definitely within your reach. Although Snowdon is one of the highest mountains in the UK and the tallest mountain in Wales, it is probably the friendliest for the novice walker to ascend.

Join Team SANE and let’s all make a difference in the lives of people affected by mental illness.


Snowdon Sunrise Challenge 2022

When: 31 July 2022

Where: Llanberis, Wales

Distance: 9 miles/14.5km

Duration: 6-7 hours – starting at 2am to take in the stunning sunrise over the Welsh mountains.

The Llanberis Path mainly follows the Snowdon Mountain Railway track, and goes by Hebron, Halfway and Clogwyn stations. Before the railway was opened in 1896, visitors employed guides to lead them to the summit along this path on mule back.

A remarkable geological feature can be seen from the Llanberis Path, the Clogwyn Du’r Arddu syncline. The syncline was formed over thousands of years, as the earth moved and transformed horizontal deposits into vertical layers of rock.
