The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

March 14, 2011

Yorkshire Three Peaks

Many people planning on undertaking the National Three Peaks Challenge often use the Yorkshire Three Peaks as a training walk, to build up stamina or to test their kit (and team mates!) before the event.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks is a 12 hour Challenge which takes place in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  The park is dominated by the peaks of Pen-y-ghent (694m/2276 ft), Whernside (736m/2414ft) and Ingleborough (724m/2375ft).  The Challenge is to complete a circular route of around 25 miles/40 km over these three peaks in under twelve hours.  The start and finish are situated in the village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale.

If you would like to take part in one of our fully-supported Yorkshire Three Peaks events we have a couple of dates running in 2011 suitable for individuals or small groups.  We provide a Mountain Leader and vehicle support, light refreshments throughout and a certificate for all successful participants.
