A 24 mile circular walk across the Yorkshire Three Peaks offering amazing views and a great team atmosphere. A fully marshalled walk with checkpoints offering refreshments and support from the Charity Team who will be there to spur you on.

Starting in Horton-in-Ribblesdale, you will begin your journey hiking up Pen-Y-Ghent, past Ribblehead Viaduct to ascend Whernside and finally tackle the short scramble up Ingleborough before heading back into Horton-in-Ribblesdale where we will be waiting to celebrate your return.

It will be an early start with most walkers expected to complete the challenge in 12 hours. You will need to put in the training and once you are signed up, you will receive a in depth information pack.

We are once again offering two registration options:

Pay a £35 registration fee and then raise as much sponsorship as you can; we ask you aim for a minimum of £130

OR

Self-fund - pay the £35 reg fee, plus a £50 donation and there is no need to worry about sponsorship
