About the event

Take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge and support your local Sue Ryder hospice. The walk is a challenging 24.5 miles and 5000ft of ascent to be tackled by competent walkers aiming to complete the challenge within 12 hours.

Set against the stunning backdrop of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, the walk ascends the 3 peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent. There will be qualified Mountain Leaders throughout the route to assist you with any help you may need.

Breakfast will be available from 6.15am and there will be refreshment stops on the route, in addition to the finish.  Event day registration and safety briefing are between 6am and 6.50am and the event will start at 7am.

Entry into this challenge includes a welcome pack, technical t-shirts and on-route expert mountain guides from Yorkshire Dales Guides, as well as fundraising and on the day support from your local hospice team.

The £30 registration fee (per person) covers the cost of this event and so we ask that each member of your team raises a minimum of £200 for either Manorlands or Wheatfields hospice. Your local hospice fundraising team will be on hand to help you every step of the way. We can provide you with collection buckets, banners, bunting and more to help you with your fundraising.
