We offer two different versions of the 10 Peaks Challenge: the Linear Route and the Circular Route. This page is about the Circular Route. Click here for the alternative Linear Route

Increasingly popular, the 10 Peaks Challenge (Circular Route) offers the chance to take on serious mountain challenge, but without the costs associated with the complicated logistics of the Linear Route.
