The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is an attempt to climb the highest peaks in Yorkshire in 12 hours.

Thee Yorkshire Three Peaks are Pen-y-gent, Whernside, and Ingleborough. We normally complete them in that order, but it is possible to go the other way round.

We meet up in Horton-in-Ribblesdale on Saturday evening for a kit check and briefing, starting the challenge early on Sunday morning at 7:30 am, climb Pen-y-gent, Whernside and Ingleborough, finishing at back at Horton in the early evening!

2021 Price £50 per person

This is a tough event and people participating should have the necessary fitness and also be prepared to manage a total of 23 miles including 3 strenuous ascents! We aim to complete the event within the 12 hour time limit, however this can vary depending upon the speed of the group.

The course is guided by qualified mountain leaders. We have many years experience delivering adventurous expeditions and challenges like this; over the years hundred of people have completed their events with us. We would be delighted if we can help you with yours.

If you want to do this challenge but benefit from sleep in between we can offer this event over more relaxed timescales. Please contact us for further details.

We regularly run this adventure over a weekend, Sat or Sunday, however if you would like to do this at any other time, including midweek, then please contact us.
