Following three incredible years we'll be back in 2024 hoping to make this our biggest night hike yet! We're taking on Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) by night and would love for you to join us. Let's make this year even bigger! Lace up your boots, grab your torch and take part in our Snowdon climb at night.
With your fellow walkers, you will leave the streetlights of Llanberis and walk into the darkness of the night, wearing your head torch, leaving a glowing trail up the mountain.
With the support of Mountain leaders, you will ascend higher and higher along the Llanberis path with its gradual climb. On your descent from the summit, you may get the chance to watch the sun rise as you reflect on your amazing achievement and enjoy the stunning views of Snowdonia National Park.
With the warmth of the morning sun to guide you home, you must summon the energy to return back down the track. Upon arrival at the finish, you will be able to enjoy a celebratory breakfast.

Our Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) by Night Hike webinar was a great opportunity to hear all the key information from Sands and Charity Challenge about this incredible event taking place on Saturday 18th May 2024.
We shared what the event is like, past walkers' stories and photos which have a great idea of what to expect from the moment you arrive in Llanberis, how you will be guided to the summit and how Sands and Charity Challenge will support you back down the mountain and congratulate you with your breakfast and medal. We also spoke about the difference your fundraising will make and how we can support you to reach your target.
Charity Challenge who will be running the event weekend then ran through the itinerary, how it will be organised across the night and also talked through the type of kit you might want to bring with you. There was also be a chance to answer any questions.
Whether you're signed up already, or still thinking about it, catch up on the recording here.
Who will you climb Snowdon for?
With over 200 other climbers taking part for Sands many will be walking in memory of their precious baby. By taking part you can walk alone reflecting on your own memories and you can also have the chance to share memories with your friends, family and new friends too. It is such a beautiful hike to be a part of and all funds raised will help us save babies' lives and help anyone affected by the death of a baby.
