I will be attempting an FKT of the Welsh Three Peaks on Tuesday 31st May 2016.
The Welsh Three Peaks Challenge takes in the three peaks of Wales: Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) in the North, Cadair Idris in mid-Wales, and Pen y Fan in the South.
It includes a total running distance of 17 miles (27.4km) with an ascent of around 1500 metres (4920ft), there is also around 4.5 hours of driving inbetween.
I'm not sure if anyone out there knows of an existing FKT on this, I have spoken to Three Peaks Challenge UK who register records and they have said they don't know of any particularly notable times.. Most will attempt it in either 24 hours or 12 hours although as far as I am aware nobody has yet done it under 12 hours.. I will be aiming for anything under 10 hours..
It would be great to hear from anyone that has done this or already have the FKT on it..
Hi all.. I completed the Welsh Three Peaks on Tuesday 31st 2016 at 17:42 at Storey Arms, at the foot of Pen-Y-Fan, Brecon after staring at the foot of Snowdon at 8:36am. Total time including the driving between mountains of 9 hours and 6 minutes, meaning I can claim the FKT I have all gpx files along with pictures if anyone requests them, I've also sent them off to be verified by Three Peaks Challenge UK. If anyone fancies having a go at this, feel free to get in touch if you need any info or if I can help with anything.
