Dads Take on the #10nTaff Challenge
The preliminary schedule for the #10nTaff is brutal.
After driving up to North Wales on Wednesday 30th June, the team prepare themselves for three days of almost non-stop physical exertion.
On July 1st (day 1), the team intend to set off at dawn to climb the five highest mountains in Wales.
- Carnedd Llewellyn (Carneddau Range): Elevation – 1064m (3rd highest in Wales)
- Carnedd Dafydd (Carneddau Range): Elevation – 1044m (4th highest in Wales)
- Glyder Fawr (Glyderau Range): Elevation – 1001m (5th highest in Wales)
- Garnedd Ugain (Snowdon Massif): Elevation – 1065m (2nd highest in Wales)
- Snowdon (Snowdon Massif): Elevation – 1085m (Highest in Wales)
Late in the evening of day 1, the team is driven down to the Black Mountains in West Wales. After a few hours rest, at dawn on July 2nd (day 2) they begin their assault on the five highest mountains in the Brecon Beacons. These are:
- Fan Brydeiniog (Black Mountains): Elevation – 802m
- Fan Hir (Black Mountains): Elevation – 761m
- Waun Rydd (Central Brecon Beacons): Elevation – 769m
- Cribyn (Central Brecon Beacons): Elevation – 795m
- Pen-y-Fan (Central Brecon Beacons): Elevation – 886m
After completing the second stage of the challenge, the team will have an overnight stay at the Brecon Forest Farmhouse just outside Brecon.
At dawn on July 3rd (day 3), the team will start the seven-hour, 52-mile cycle ride from Brecon to Cardiff Bay along the Taff Trail.
This may sound like madness, but these Dads, Uncles and Brothers of children who are supported by Tŷ Hafan have taken on challenges before. They striped naked for a calendar and have also walked 5 mountains in 55 hours. They were even crowned the Just Giving Team Fundraiser of the Year.
