Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge

Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge

Published at 11:47am 9th April 2018.

The British Red Cross challenges you to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks!

They are challenging you to one of the most rewarding treks of the legendary Yorkshire 3 Peaks, and the British Red Cross wants you part of their team!

Are you someone who loves walking? Do you want to see the UK’s finest scenery, right here in Yorkshire? Do you want to push yourself to a challenge you’ll enjoy? Then sign up now and prepare yourself for 24.5 miles and three 700m high peaks of breath-taking scenery.  

Don’t miss out, with over 200 people already signed up and raring to go, this is definitely not an event to be missed!

On Saturday 21st July 2018 your unforgettable experience will begin, all while raising money that will make a difference to so many people’s lives across the UK and overseas.

Senior Community Fundraiser for the British Red Cross in Yorkshire, Helen Whale, said:

“We’ve seen people come from all over to take on this challenge, it’s a day you’ll never forget. The whole day is full of amazing views, supportive walkers and a well-deserved cup of tea and a medal at the end! There’s so much to gain and you are supported by our team from the day you sign up.”

Entry costs just £10 and you won’t be alone in raising sponsorship. The Red Cross’ expert fundraisers will help every participant to reach and maybe even exceed their £100 target!

Helen Whale added:

“Every penny this event raises goes towards the crucial work the British Red Cross does in the UK and overseas. It could be a house fire that leaves a family homeless, not knowing where to turn. It could be terrified people escaping the devastation of war, needing guidance and comfort. The British Red Cross will be there for anyone in need.”

Come and be part of the British Red Cross team and walk the Yorkshire 3 Peaks for a good cause!
