Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge
We are inviting you to take on the glorious Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge where you will cover 24 miles and 5,000 feet, pushing yourself to reach all three of Yorkshire’s highest peaks, in just one day!
Pull on your hiking boots to face rocky terrain, steep climbing and thousands of steps, while trekking through the heart of Yorkshire’s majestic scenery (including the famous Ribblehead Viaduct), all to raise vital funds to support local people living with life limiting illnesses.
Starting early Saturday morning, you will start your 12 hour challenge in Horton-in-Ribblehead and will begin by trekking up to the summit of Ingleborough (723m). You’ll then tackle Pen-y-ghent (694m) before taking on the highest peak in Yorkshire: Whernside (736m). The route is fully supported with mountain guides, and we will provide you with full fundraising support to help you complete your challenge for Saint Francis Hospice.
Your registration and sponsorship will pay for:
- A fully supported trek, with mountain guides to lead you around the route.
- Certificates of completion
- Public liability insurance
Accommodation is not included in the costs, but we do recommend you make your way to Yorkshire the night before, so you’re up bright and early, ready to go on Saturday! You can find lots of accommodation options here: https://www.threepeakschallenge.uk/yorkshire-three-peaks-challenge/accommodation.
Your determination has never been more important!
Registration for this event is just £40 and by signing up you agree to raise a minimum sponsorship of £250.
Saint Francis Hospice has been greatly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and now needs your support more than ever before. It costs approximately £12m to run our Hospice for one year.
By taking part in the challenge, and pledging to raise a minimum of £250, the donations and sponsorship you raise will help to keep the hospice running and will enable us to provide support that the community so desperately needs.
£270 could pay for a patient to receive 5 hours of care, in their own home, from our Hospice at Home Nurses.
£400 could pay for 2 crisis clinical nurse specialist visits where our nurses will provide expert symptom control.
If, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to hold this event on the planned date we will re-schedule for when restrictions allow.
