The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge – 3 – 5 September 2021

 12 hours. 24 miles. One amazing challenge to support Willen Hospice

Whether you’re a seasoned hiker, or you’re up for trying something completely different, our Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is the perfect opportunity to do something amazing while fundraising for Willen Hospice.

What is The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge?

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is a circular walk which involves reaching the summit of three peaks in the Yorkshire Dales, in fewer than 12 hours:

  • Pen-y-ghent (694m)
  • Whernside (736m), the highest peak in the Dales
  • Ingleborough (724m)

The challenge route is  approximately 24 miles (38.4km) and includes a total ascent of approximately 1500m (5000ft). This is almost the equivalent of marathon distance but with lots of steep ascents and descents added in!

It sounds tough – and it is, so you’ll have to put your training in – but the stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales should help with the aches and pains.

    This the COVID-Statement from Different Travel for Y3P which is on the booking form…

    Your health and safety is our top priority so rest assured that we are taking steps to ensure you not only have a memorable experience, but a safe one too.

    We are constantly monitoring and following Government guidelines with regards to COVID-19 restrictions. Health and safety is our top priority so we will NEVER operate a trip in an area where there is clear and present risk to our team members, whether that is due to a health outbreak, political instability, natural disasters or anything else.

    We are optimistic that this trip will operate as scheduled, however if restrictions here in the UK prevent safe travel we will look to either postpone or cancel your trip at no cost to you.

    Please note that at the time of travel there may be enhanced safety and security measures and you may need to provide a certificate of health. We are closely monitoring the situation and will inform you about any information pertinent to your travel arrangements.
