Dominating the skyline above the Yorkshire Dales are three peaks; Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen y Ghent. Covering 24 miles and a 1,700 metre ascent, you will walk through the Yorkshire Dales National Park and see how its spectacular fells tower over the surrounding moors and countryside. Your challenge is to complete the three peaks in 12 hours, so that more people with sight loss and other disabilities can build on their independence and lead a fulfilling life.

For just a £10 entry fee and a very achievable fundraising target of £100 you can have a great time, achieve a personal goal and help people with sight loss and other disabilities go beyond expectations.
  

From Horton, the clock starts ticking….

Walking as one team we will attempt to conquer the peaks of Whernside (736m), Ingleborough (723m) and Pen-y-Ghent (694m); covering 39km; climbing over 1700m. With just 12 hours to return to Horton and stamp our cards in the famous Pen-y-Ghent Café to successfully complete the challenge and enter the ‘Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club’. 

Join us on the Sunday for a bonus stroll around the Ingleton Waterfall Trail. (Entry to the falls is £7, children £3).

Weather:

Hill and mountain walking can be hazardous! Not being prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions can lead to over exposure or heat stroke. Layers are key, allowing you to easily adjust your level of warmth. We are likely to experience some nasty weather, so for your safe enjoyment please bring the items specified on the kit list.   

Food & Drink:

Walkers are expected to bring all of the food they need for the walk. 

As with kit, make sure you have tried and tested anything you eat during the walks, as you do not know how your body might react.

You are going to be walking for 12 hours. You will consume body fat reserves, expel water and salts that need replacing to prevent muscle cramps, dehydration and fatigue. Hydration is the most important aspect of nutrition. It is essential to take on water in regular, small amounts throughout the walk. It is easy to underestimate how much you need and suffer dehydration, particularly in hot weather.  Each walker should carry a minimum of 3 litres of fluid; water and sugary drinks. It is important to bring plenty of high energy food and snacks as well as something substantial like a sandwich for lunch. You need to provide your own food and water for the duration of the Challenge. We expect to have several refreshment stops on the route, but best to prepare for the unexpected!

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!
