Restart Rugby Legends Alpine Challenge 2017

Three Peaks. Three Countries. Three Days. Join England rugby legends Charlie Hodgson, Lee Mears and Ben Clarke for a 5* trek of a lifetime.

We’ve teamed up with mountain challenge specialists Chamonix Hard Cross to bring you a unique event, covering more than 60km and ascending a total of 4,500m. You will join our rugby legends Charlie, Lee, Ben and RPA Group CEO Damian Hopley in conquering Testa Della Tronche in Italy, Tete Ronde in Switzerland and Le Brevent in France*.

You will be staying at a stunning 5-star luxury base camp in Chamonix, France, ensuring your weary feet receive a well-earned break at the end of each day. Alongside some amazing facilities, you’ll be provided with fantastic food and wine to keep you going.

“I can honestly say it’s a life-changing experience. There is something special about being in the mountains and being part of an incredible team of trekkers committed to raising as much money as possible to support professional rugby players whose lives have been affected by serious illness or injury. If you’re looking for an amazing challenge, come and join us – you won’t be disappointed”, said Restart Rugby Ambassador, Charlie Hodgson.
