Join the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge with the Ipswich Hospital Charity. The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24-miles long, and includes 5,200ft (1,585m) of ascent. This is one of the classic mountain challenges in the UK.

You will be hiking / walking for around 10 – 12 hours. This challenge is not a race, you will be part of a group and the pace will be determined by your mountain guide on the challenge. The terrain is rolling and rough under foot. You must prepare before coming on the trip / challenge, anything cardiovascular will help – running or long walks are a great way of training. You will be carrying a small rucksack with your mountain essentials.
