Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is 24-miles (38.6km) round trip route, and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres), usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These hills form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

How to take part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge?

You can complete the Challenge either as part of an organised event, or as a self organised group. We have organised dates available each year, and we can also arrange private events for large groups.
