top 10 do's and don'ts for the three peaksBased on personal experience, here’s some basic do’s and don’ts for the national 3 peaks challenge:

  • DO take drinks from a drinks bladder and pack your rucksack carefully so things are where you need them and easily accessible
  • DO use laminated maps and make sure everyone can navigate (and consider booking a Mountain Guide)
  • DO get the team together as often as possible for training
  • DO set team ground rules and responsibilities
  • DO choose your vehicle wisely (see the travelling page) and have at least one dedicated driver
  • DON’T invite new team members shortly before your challenge or if you don’t know them very well
  • DON’T use equipment you haven’t tried out beforehand
  • DON’T set too fast a pace – go slow and steady and follow the slowest (see top tips)
  • DON’T argue – it will be tiring, good team spirit is vital
  • DON’T wear new walking boots – they should be worn in for at lease a couple of months
