Glow Green: Snowdon Sunrise


Glow Green: Snowdon Sunrise!

Following on from two very successful years of 'Lead The Way: Snowdon' we are now bringing to you the next step; climbing Snowdon at night!

Setting off at 03:00 (approximately), we will guide you up Snowdon with our team of experts as we all light the North Welsh sky green in our neon 'Glow Green' attire!

This event is one for adults aged 16+, so whether you're celebrating a life, remembering a loved one or just enjoy walking with other likeminded people this is a fantastic way to support the incredible work carried out at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

Taking on a total of 9 miles from the Llanberis Community Centre to the summit, you will enjoy an incredible sunrise, before heading back for breakfast to celebrate with your friends and family as we walk against cancer together.

If we’re honest it’s a little over 9 miles (at 9.3 miles in total), but you’ll forgive us for that when you experience the ecstasy of reaching the summit and looking out as far as the eye can see in the glorious morning sunlight (weather permitting!).

Glow Green: Snowdon Sunrise is a guided trek alongside a fully qualified mountain guide team and whilst it may not be for the smallest ones in the family, it's certainly the perfect event for those looking to challenge themselves and experience Snowdon and the Welsh mountain range in a whole new light.

This is an event that is truly unique and is an incredible adventure for all.
Sign up today and help us continue to support patients living with cancer throughout Merseyside, Cheshire and beyond.
