Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge for Martin House

Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge for Martin House

Published by Harry Long at 12:34pm 20th February 2020.

A charity is urging walkers to sign up to tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

  • The Martin House Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge takes place on 13th June. 
  • Walkers complete the trek in 12 hours.
  • The trek is self-led, but walkers are supported by guides along the route.  

The challenge, for Martin House Hospice, sees walkers taking on Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, completing the 24-mile trek in just 12 hours.

It takes place on Saturday 13th June.

The trek is self-led, but there will be expert guides to support walkers along the route.

It starts and finishes in Horton in Ribblesdale, taking in some of the most magnificent views of the Yorkshire Dales.

Yorkshire three peaks

Sara Cracknell, events fundraiser at Martin House, said:

“Our Yorkshire Three Peaks walk has grown in popularity every year. It’s a great challenge to take on as a group of friends or work colleagues while raising cash to support children and young people.”

Martin House cares for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions across North and West Yorkshire.

This year, the charity is also running a Yorkshire One Peak challenge, a four-hour trek up Pen-y-ghent, which will run alongside the Three Peaks.

Sara said:

“It’s a perfect challenge if you’d like to take part in the day, but don’t feel ready to tackle the full Three Peaks.”

Walkers who sign up for either challenge can take part in up to three practice walks organised by KUTA, which take place throughout March.

It costs £35 to register for the Three Peaks, and everyone who takes part is asked to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship, while the One Peak costs £20 to register, with a £50 sponsorship target. 

You can sign up here or here - or by calling the fundraising team on 01937 844569.
