After yet again another spectacularly successful Yorkshire Three Peak challenge, we are pleased to announce that registration for the event in 2020 is now open!
The Three Peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside are among the best known hills in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The peaks, which form part of the Pennine range, are arranged in a triangle tand encircle the heads of the valleys of the River Ribble and of Chapel-le-Dale.
The challenge is to walk the circular route, scaling each peak in turn aiming for a time less than 12 hours. The total walking distance is 39.2km (24.5 miles).
To take part in our Three Peak Challenge there is a registration fee at an early bird price of £25 (£30 after 20 December 2019) which covers the costs of putting on the event and looking after your health and safety. Every pound that you raise in addition to your registration fee will help us to support patients during their stay in our hospitals. We ask everyone to aim to raise a minimum of £125 for this challenge.
The walk itself is fully marshalled with checkpoints along the route and your leader will brief you fully on the morning of the walk. You can walk at whatever pace is good for you. We expect most walkers to complete the walk in between 11 and 12 hours.
Our Community Fundraiser Maya will be there to support you on the day. She'll be there handing out some additonal supplies before the walk and will greet you with a very cheery smile and a certificate when you return and may even see you at a few checkpoints depending how quick you are!
You can register as an individual or as part of a team; why not get a group of you together and support each other.
