Join us for a mountain challenge with a difference… as we take our Glow Green Night Walk to Snowdon!

Our team of experts will guide you up the mountain from 3am, lighting a path to the top, in time to take in the early morning sunrise.

On every step on this stunning nine-mile challenge, you’ll see the famous Yr Wyddfa in a whole new light, before you experience that special time of day together as a team.

Whether you’re celebrating a life, taking on a personal challenge or remembering a loved one, you’ll be changing the lives of local people with cancer.

While we can’t plan for perfect weather, we can promise that this will be a walk to remember as you set off in the dark from Llanberis Community Centre (don't forget your head torch!). Wrap up in your brightest, greenest outfit, grab your glowsticks and head to the summit, before heading back for breakfast to celebrate your achievement with friends and family.

Glow Green: Snowdon Sunrise is a guided trek with a fully qualified mountain adventure team who will give you a full briefing and check your kit before supporting you on the mountain. Suitable for groups and individuals aged 16+.

Sign up today and help to make a real difference to patients and research at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
