UPCOMING EVENTS

Here are some of the events happening in aid of Air Ambulance NI you can register for below.

3 Peaks 2020

Join us this September to take part in our 3 Peaks Challenge 2020!

There are 3 Peaks to choose from or you could really challenge yourself by climbing all three.

In the instance that this event cannot take place as planned, all participants will be sent their very own virtual pack, to complete their chosen Peak virtually from the safety of their home by climbing the equivalent number of flights of stairs as these well-known mountains.

Choose your peak:

  • Slemish 12th September 2020 

    Choose to join us on our first peak as we take on the beautiful Slemish Mountain, Ballymena.  The one and a half kilometer round walk to the summit and back showcases excellent views of the Antrim and Scottish coasts to the east.

  • Slieve Donard 26th September 2020 

    Finally, our last and probably our toughest challenge, the mighty Slieve Donard.  At 850m (2,789 ft) it is the highest of the Mourne Mountains. The views from the summit are extensive and on a clear day, the Isle of Man, Wicklow, Donegal, Wales, and Scotland may be seen, as well as the long stretch of Newcastle Beach.

  • Virtual Peak 

    For the very first time, we have created a virtual pack for walkers to complete this challenge from the comfort of their own home. You can choose which of the three peaks you would like to virtually complete by climbing the equivalent number of flights of stairs and keep track of your progress with our handy tracker guide.

 

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, our third physical peak is currently being reviewed to ensure we can maintain good social distancing along all aspects of the route. We will confirm a third physical location as soon as possible.

 

Registration for each peak costs £20 or just £50 for all 3 Peaks!

We hope you will be able to raise a suggested minimum donation of £55 through sponsorship from friends, family, and your workplaceTo help you with this, once registered, we will send you a registration pack with everything you’ll need to get started! You can also collect donations online by setting up a Just Giving page by clicking here.

Walkers must be over 11 years old and where under 18 years they must be accompanied by a registered adult participant.

All walkers must complete and return the medical form in their registration pack before the date of their chosen climb.
