The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge
Are you looking for a one-day challenge of epic proportions? Do you think you could reach the summit of not one, not two but three mountains in just one day? Then sign up for our Yorkshire Three Peaks trek taking place in May 2021.
Safely and successfully delivered in 2020...
This will be our second year of offering the challenge, following on from the resounding success of Yorkshire Three Peaks 2020. It was the only outdoor event that we were able to hold in 2020 due to Coronavirus restrictions, and we're proud that we were able to deliver it safely with social distancing in place.
The challenge is a 39.2km circular route that climbs all three mountains in the stunning countryside of the Yorkshire Dales - Whernside (736m), Ingleborough (723m) and Pen-y-ghent (694m).
It is a one-day event and most walkers complete the route in 10-13 hours. But this challenge should not be taken lightly as the terrain is extremely varied involving some steep ascents and descents.
Help us celebrate making a difference in Yorkshire
The start and finish will be at Horton-in-Ribblesdale, that can be accessed via the Settle-Carlisle Railway, and the walk will feature the stunning landscapes and take in the Ribblehead Viaduct, a magnificent feat of Victorian railway engineering. Your first summit in the early morning will see you ascend 694m to the top of Pen-y-ghent, but there will be no hanging around, as you trek on through to midday and your second summit, Whernside, the highest peak at 736m.
Finally the afternoon will lead you on to your third and final summit, up 723m to the top of Ingleborough, with awe-inspiring views across the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.
