The short answer is Yes. To prepare for the Three Peaks Challenge, you’ll need to be in peak condition. Sure, it’s only walking, but walking to the top of Australia’s tallest mountains is no walk in the park.
Your goal is to climb 52 kilometres of steep terrain while helping your fellow climbers make the distance. And to do that, you’ll need to train. Nearly every week from December there will be free training sessions around both Melbourne and Sydney, including 1-2 night training sessions.
It is mandatory to attend at least 2 day training walks, and 1 night training walk. This will be monitored by the guiding crew and event staff.
