All UK based teams are required to attend one of the two 'Qualifying Walks' to validate they are capable of taking part. Non UK teams need to contact the organisers so we can sign off on your planned qualifier in your home country.

​The first is Snowdon on Sat 2nd May, it's early in the season so will likely be wet. It's a good long walk up the Llanberis Path, with a cold cider waiting for you at the Snowdon Cafe on your return.

​The second is at Scafell Pike on Sat 16th May. This is our preferred pre-walk as it's a tough one to navigate especially when the weather isn't in our favour.  It also gives you a good taste of what's to come.​

​Organisers will be in contact with team leaders after your applications have been received to talk about qualifying and which walk your team will attend.

​​You will not be able to take part in the main event if you haven't completed this step.

Full kit is required for these walks so it can be checked by the safety team, and you wouldn't go onto a mountain without it anyway.
