We are excited to have partnered with Global Adventure Challenges to bring you the National 3 Peaks Challenge. By taking part in this once in a life time event you will support our work enhancing the experience of patients and their families receiving care at Priscilla Bacon Lodge.

From the rugged beauty of the Glen Nevis Valley, to the forests and estuaries of the stunning Snowdonia National Park, join the team at Global Adventure Challenges for one almighty trekking challenge, as we take on the UK’s giants on this classic 3 Peaks Challenge!

We’ll take on Ben Nevis (1,345m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m) aiming to summit all three in a total trekking time of 15 hours or less. You’ll climb around 3,050 meters and have walked approx. 22 miles, so grit and determination are essential to completing this fast-paced challenge. It’s little wonder this challenge is the most highly-regarded trekking challenge in the UK.

30/60 Mile Route

A beautiful 30 or 60 mile ride in Norfolk’s lovely countryside. Starting from The Forum and taking in the edge of the Broads, touching the coast on the 60, while the 30 mile loops inland taking in a stretch alongside the Bure Valley Railway, before reaching bucolic Ranworth, and then a triumphant return to food, drink and a medal at the Finish – Lower School by the Cathedral.

100 Mile Route

A classic, (and very beautiful), 100 mile ride around Norfolk. Starting from The Forum and taking in the edge of the Broads, Horsey Mill, the coast, (and some hills!), all the way to Cley, and Blakeney, then a new route through Holt to Blickling Hall before food, drink and a medal back at the Finish – Lower School by the Cathedral.
