The challenge will be to climb Pen Y Fan (886 metres) 10 times in 24 hours. We will cover just over 40 miles in total! The event will start at 6pm on the date of the event at the car park just before Storey Arms and we will climb through the night! Food, drink and first aid is all provided as well as rest areas and physio’s for aching limbs! For those who don’t want to take on the full challenge then you can do any number of climbs or just bring the family along and support us all! It’s all for a good cause but the more support, the better! If you take on the night climb you may be lucky enough to see one of the most spectacular night sky’s in the UK as well as seeing the sun rise the following morning at the top of Pen Y Fan – we cant guarantee the weather but we can guarantee a great event!
We are always looking for volunteers to help with the event – this can range from First Aid Support, registration desk, food & drinks, mountain support. If you would like to volunteer please contact the organisers here.
Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you as soon as possible

We have finally decided to take the plunge and add a blog to the site.
We always wanted an easy way to share information with visitors and we are very
excited to start this journey. Keep coming back to this site and check for
updates right here on the blog
We had a massive 69 climbers who achieved the full
10 climbs with a large number of people who did over 5 climbs. The weather was
awful but the spirit at the whole event remained incredibly high! The
fundraising efforts have meant that £50,000 has been handed over to LATCH and
we will be able to update you very shortly on how that will be spent so watch
this space. Put it this way, the project LATCH have in mind will be a first in
Europe and this is all down to you!
Our first awards ceremony went very well with
awards for climbers, volunteers, the fundraisers (sponsored by EE) and our
first Ten-Y-Fantastic recipients for those who showed true Ten Y Fan spirit –
well done to Danni, Emma, Gareth and of course young Lucy. We hope you had a great
night. Next year will be bigger, better and likely to involve an 80’s disco!!
Keep an eye on the website for more photos and videos of the night.
It is with great pleasure that we can formally
announce that Michael Sheen is ambassador for Ten Y Fan. Michael is a superb
role model for the event and is passionate about supporting local charities so
we couldn’t be happier to have him support the cause. Not only that but EE will
be our main sponsor moving forward as well. Allison and her team in Merthyr Tydfil
regularly support local charities and are keen to help Ten Y Fan. We are really
looking forward to a cracking 2017!
We hope you have some great memories from the event
and look forward to seeing you all again next year. The date for next year’s
event will be announced at some point in October and is likely to be held in
May next year as we need to avoid any blistering heat! We will also announce
the chosen charity that we would like to raise money for….could we generate
over £100,000 for next year….?!
See you soon and thank you again for a truly
memorable few months
