The Yorkshire 3 Peak Challenge 2019

Join The Principle Trust to complete the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge on Saturday 14th September 2019.

We will meet at the car park in Horton in Ribblesdale at 7am and begin our challenge at 7.30am. To complete the challenge all 3 Peaks should be reached by 7.30pm.

The three peaks of the Yorkshire Three Peaks are arranged in a triangle, with the River Ribble and two minor B roads between them. The total walking distance is 39.2km (24.5 miles).

Our Guide will take you to your first summit which will see you ascend 2,227 feet to the top of Pen-y-ghent. We will then continue on as you trek on through to midday and your second summit, Whernside, the highest peak at 2,415 feet.

Finally the afternoon will lead you on to your third and final summit, up 2,372 feet to the top of Ingleborough, with awe-inspiring views across the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. This then leads us back to the car park.

Unlike other charities we will not be charging for this experience. If you’d like to take place it is FREE, however we would like you to commit to raising at least £30 each. We will also supply you with a Charity T-shirt to wear on the day.
