Three Peaks Challenge
Die Hard Trilogy: 3rd-4th September 2011
The 'Die Hard Trilogy' Three Peaks Challenge traditionally attracts more experienced teams who've had the opportunity to spend the summer training and getting mountain fit. Less experienced teams are very welcome, but should note this event has less daylight hours than our June events, and even though challenges run until late October, if you are unsure of your fitness or ability then please consider our 2011 'Spring Stroller' event which has more relaxed timings.
Daylight hours are much shorter on this challenge than our challenge events in June, and teams should be experienced at navigation in the dark. Teams, as ever, are expected to carry safety equipment as detailed in our 'Required Kit List', and should be prepared for less settled weather conditions at this time of year. Teams are encouraged to attend our Wasdale & Scafell Pike training event held in March, April and May 2011 - see the links to the left for more details.

What to expect before you start...
After we receive your Entry Form and Entry Fee, we will acknowledge receipt via email, stating if your team has secured a place in the event. Entry downloads will be disabled once the entry limit is reached, but some people still send entries after this time.
Shortly after your entry is confirmed by email, you will recieve an initial information pack through the post. This includes a Beacon Map & Guide Set - the mountain routes you will be using on the challenge - a Fitness Training Programme, a Kit List, an Event Itinerary and other useful planning information.
Planning support is available via our forum, and also directly via email. Two weeks before the event date you will receive a final information email which details the fine details required for registration, and any changes or updates. My direct email is email@example.com
We recommend all teams stay in Fort William the night before the challenge. You must visit Registration on Saturday morning, register each team member, get the latest information, talk to mountain leaders and organisers, collect your final information pack and read through it whilst enjoying some Scottish hospitality... This also includes event ID numbers for your vehicle, etc.
Registration will be open during the morning on Saturday., and exact times and locations will be confirmed in the information email before the challenge.
On Saturday, your Team Leader and Lead Driver MUST attend the Event Safety Briefing. This will last around 45 minutes, and is where you will get all of the latest event information, and get to use the safety equipment. We will also distribute the event safety equipment, including handheld VHF Radios, emergency group shelters, cookers & fuel, team leader race bibs, Sport Ident dibbers, etc.
Each team will have a slightly different start time, and should arrive at the start 15 minutes before this start time. The start will not be more than 10 minutes away from the registration venue. On arrival, we will give you a final, final, safety briefing, do a team kit check, check VHF radios, clear any old information on your Sport Ident dibber, then get some team photo's - then. 3... 2... 1... GO!
