TrekFest - The Peaks

Join #TeamSallyArmy on the ultimate UK trekking challenge – TrekFest!

Trekking through the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales, you’ll discover breathtaking landscapes, stunning hills and tranquil reservoirs!

The aim of this epic trek across the Brecon Beacons in South Wales is simple – complete your chosen distance whilst making the miles count for The Salvation Army.

What is TrekFest?

Choose between the 25km router & the 50km route, both routes reach the summit of the Brecon Beacons’ highest peak, Pen Y Fan (886m). Suitable for beginner trekkers and expert trail runners alike, taking on TrekFest is by no means a walk in the park – it’s tough and will test you both physically and mentally, pushing your boundaries like never before. 

Why walk for #TeamSallyArmy ?

At The Salvation Army we work hard to fight injustice and exploitation. Our aim is to change the world we live in, to literally transform lives of those who need it most, whether that be victims of human trafficking or modern-day slavery or those suffering from homelessness, addiction or domestic abuse.  We work on the ‘front line’ everyday fighting against some of the greatest evils of our time to help people break through barriers. Help us transform lives.

How will I reach my fundraising target?

We support you throughout your fundraising journey:  from our fundraising welcome pack, to our Facebook support group, to a breathable Sally Army t-shirt, we stay in touch every step of the way – giving out tips & tricks, and helping you reach your goals.
