Here’s what you need to know about the Three Peaks Fun Challenge.
L7 Craft Beer and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) are happy to announce a new edition of the 3 Peaks Fun Challenge starting on World Animal day, the weekend of 4 October 2019. Here you can join in on an adventure of epic proportions and tackle three mountains in three days, while showing support for the work of the SPCA in the Cape.
For those of you who have answered the call of adventure and accepted this awesome challenge before, you will know that this is not a race. It’s a fun, social challenge to the top of each Cape Town iconic peak with breath-taking views and great company.
The 2019 dates
4 October: Lion’s Head: 5pm followed by a social gathering at 7.30pm
5 October: Devil’s Peak: 8:30am followed by social gathering at 12.30pm
6 October: Table Mountain 8:30am followed by social gathering at 11.30am
How it all started
With its three mythical mountains surrounding the city, Cape Town enjoys a strategic geographical location for sporting activity. With a flourishing community of runners seeking out sport events or new challenges to accomplish, the Three Peaks Fun Challenge Challenge offers a unique opportunity for sport and nature lovers to climb all three peaks in one weekend.
What started out as a fun challenge between friends has successfully grown into 4 public events and a community of over 1,600 individuals actively taking part in the conversation and enjoying Cape Town’s beautiful hiking trails.
The concept of the Three Peaks Challenge is simple – climb Lion’s Head, Devil’s Peak and Table Mountain in three days, on 4, 5 and 6 October. If all three summits seem to be out of reach for one weekend, you’re welcome to join in on any one of the three days. This is a personal, fun challenge and everyone is free to hike the peaks at their own pace. Meet at the bottom and at the top of each mountain before and after each hike. Then head up Lion’s Head on Friday afternoon, followed by Devil’s Peak on Saturday morning and then Table Mountain on Sunday morning.
Friends, parents, children and pets are welcome to join us on this fun challenge. After the challenge is complete, we welcome all participants to celebrate this great moment. As we all know, great moments deserve a great beer and we are proud to celebrate this moment with L7 Craft Beer – a 100% natural and sustainably produced beer. It will also be the moment to support the SPCA’s partner who’ll make available branded peak caps, t-shirts or a sports scarf in support of Wildlife in the Cape.
To support the work of the SPCA, official T-Shirts marking World Animal Day can also be purchased when registering for this edition of the 3 Peak Challenge. All proceeds go towards supporting the SPCA’s work in protecting animals, rescuing them from harm and caring for them.
