About & Details

Standing on top of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK, gives an amazing sense of achievement.  If the weather is kind, the views from the summit, and even from half way up, are quite stunning.  On a good day, you can see all the way to the majestic rock spires of The Isle of Skye and looking the other way, down Loch Linnhe to the Irish Sea.  At 1344m above sea level it is not uncommon to find over 2m of snow on the summit in March.  Weather conditions permit us to run this course from May to October.  Please enquire should you wish to do a winter version (Dec – Apr).

Charity Information

How to take part for Charity

To do this challenge for a charity there is a non-refundable registration fee, payable to Maximum Adventure at the time of booking.  You can then choose between the two different options below.

  • Self-Funding  Pay a registration fee at the time of booking then the balance due 10-weeks before departure.  With the self-funding option, you personally cover the full cost of the challenge.  This option means that there is no minimum sponsorship target due, but we encourage you to raise as much money as you can for Blood Cancer UK.
  • Minimum Sponsorship Pledge  Pay a registration fee at the time of booking and confirm with Blood Cancer UK their minimum fundraising requirements for the balance.  This will typically be double the cost of the adventure, less the registration fee.  With the minimum sponsorship pledge option, you must submit 80% of your fundraising target to the charity 10 weeks before the departure date.

For more details of how fundraising works please read our step by step guide here or contact us for help.
