Hikes and Treks


To sign up for a hike or trekking event, please contact the PSU Events team, who will talk you through the registration process and help you with fundraising.


Upcoming Events:

Snowdon Mountain Challenge

We will climb from Pen-Y-Pass to the summit by the Pyg Track, have a short break at the summit then descend by the Llanberis Path to Llanberis. That is around 8 miles of walking, over 2000ft of climbing and will take around 6 to 8 hours! No mean feat I am sure you will agree!

For this walk, we are using our very own PSU Domestic Abuse Support Worker and qualified mountain leader, Dave Ascough. Dave will provide a safe and enjoyable (maybe with hindsight!) walk to the summit and he will support you every step of the way, telling tales of the mountain’s history, geology and folklore. He also has a ready supply of Haribo.
