The British Heart Foundation is coming to the Yorkshire Dales on 23-24 July with a series of challenge treks to raise vital funds for life-saving research
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge covers 24 miles and with over 5,000 feet of ascent, the route takes participants through some of the most beautiful parts of the county. The Yorkshire Three Peaks average time is 10 to 12 hours. Starting and ending in Horton-in-Ribblesdale, you’ll be taking on the three highest peaks in Yorkshire: Pen-y-ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m), and trek through the heart of some of the UK’s most majestic scenery, including the famous Ribblehead Viaduct. Register now for the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday 23 July 2022. You’ll need to pay a sign-up fee and pledge to raise at least £150 (exc. gift aid). Entry £35 but enter code “TREKANDMOUNTAIN” for £5 off.
If you’ve done the Y3P before or just want a bigger challenge, then consider taking on the full 100km Yorkshire Challenge Trek in the beautiful Nidderdale area, on the south east edge of the Yorkshire Dales. There’s a challenge base-camp hub in Pateley Bridge with a range of camping options, car parking, and extensive hospitality and welfare services over the weekend. The full 100 km route is a varied figure-of-8 style route which takes in the famous Nidderdale Way, Ripley Castle, and Gouthwaite Reservoir. You’ll get full support all the way, and with half, quarter, and 10 km distance options also – there’s a Yorkshire Challenge for everyone!
