Yorkshire Three Peaks
14th May 2022 


Take on the whole of the brutal, yet beautiful, Yorkshire Three Peaks in a day with this fully supported and guided endurance challenge.

Like all of our events, this is NOT a race: this event is simply about completing the distance with the camaraderie of other like-minded people around you – there should be no desire to ‘beat’ anyone or break any records and our friendly guides will be running / hiking the whole route with you to offer a supportive pep talk when required. However, we also won’t be offended if you do want to push on ahead without us.


The route is a challenging 24.5 mile loop of The Yorkshire Dales National Park, covering  The Three Peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough with over 5200ft of ascent, starting from and finishing in Horton-in-Ribblesdale.

Aid stations will also be available along the route to top up water and grab some high quality snacks.

Can I actually do this?

To run / hike 24.5 miles is extremely challenging - the terrain and elevation of this route only increases that challenge.


Unlike other endurance events, this is NOT a race: we encourage the camaraderie and sense of “being in this together” to support each runner / hiker to complete the route and finally cross the finish line with others around you - it is not about ‘beating’ anybody, breaking any records or being the best.

Our friendly guides will be completing the route with you – they’ll never be too far away when you need that supportive pep talk.  


But, let’s not forget the difficulty of such a challenge: you should be confident in your own ability and undergo the necessary training and preparation to complete this challenge.


If you are unsure if you are ready for the challenge, do contact us for advice.
