The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is without a doubt one of the most rewarding challenges in the UK. Starting and ending in Horton-in-Ribblesdale you take in the 3 highest peaks in Yorkshire, Pen-y-ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m). The aim of the challenge is to walk this 25 mile route within 12 hours!

You will be greeted by your leader for the challenge for a briefing and opportunity to ask any questions you might have on Friday. You will set out at 7am on Saturday to ascend Pen-y-ghent, Whernside & Ingleborough before making our final descent back to Horton-in-Ribblesdale. An evening meal & celebratory drinks will be in order!
