Join #TeamStGiles for our Snowdon by Night (Yr Wyddfa)
Discover beautiful, rugged landscapes and conquer the highest mountain in Wales by moonlight as you trek to support your local hospice. See the moon from the summit and watch the sunrise as you descend the mountain slopes. This will be an unforgettable experience and we’d love you to share it with #TeamStGiles.
A popular summit trek by day-time, this trek is a tough yet rewarding challenge by night!
1. Fundraising: £49 registration fee, minimum sponsorship £350, payable 10 weeks before departure date

The base for this challenge is a friendly hotel, which makes for a comfortable, sociable start to your challenge with fantastic food as you get to know each other. At the end, you will gather back together in the warm and celebrate your overnight achievements with a slap-up breakfast!
A good entry-level grade, perfect for your first challenge. Keep in mind that this is a challenge and everyone will find elements of the trip difficult at some point, whether it is the physical trekking, the darkness or the weather. While there are many challenges, the enjoyment and rewards that come from trekking for St Giles and the sights you will encounter are unforgettable!

We’re here for you… because you’re here for us
Donna and her sister, Shara, took part in the Snowdon by Night challenge in June 2022 to thank St Giles for the care given to their mum, Joan, at the end of her life. The popular summit trek helped Donna and Shara raise an incredible £620 for St Giles.
Donna said: “The Snowdon by Night challenge was amazing – the three guides who looked after us were so helpful. Physically it was quite hard, but so rewarding once we reached the summit.
“All of the team were excellent when caring for mum – their support allowed us to spend some quality time with mum in her final days. The care they provided took the pressure off the family – we knew she was being so well looked after at St Giles.
“If you’re thinking of taking on the challenge this year, I’d say just do it! We did some long walks for our training, and I think the key thing is to not overthink the challenge that you’ve set yourself.”
