Organising Your Own Yorkshire Three Peaks

Tick list

This tick list will automatically display in a printer-friendly layout.


Walking team

We recommend organising a group of between four and fifty walkers.

If you don't have a group of four or more, we recommend taking part in an organised event, which you can sign up to as an individual or a group.


Optional registration

Registration provides guidance on organising a safe and responsible challenge, as well as recording your challenge online, and promoting any fundraising. Certificates of completion are included.

Registration costs £6 per person, and is available online at threepeakschallenge.net.


Accommodation

The Challenge takes a full day, so we recommend staying locally before and after. There is limited accommodation available and it books up well in advance, so we advise booking very early.

To help you choose where you stay, please see our Yorkshire Three Peaks accommodation recommendations.


Support car

Transport isn't required during the challenge itself, as the route starts and finishes in the same place, but it is sensible to arrange for a vehicle to provide support during the walk. This provides a safe means for group members to retire from the walk midway, and can provide refreshments.


Kit

Make sure that each group member has all appropriate kit for taking part in the Challenge.


Training plan

Write out a sensible training plan for your group, to ensure that everyone is at a suitable level of fitness when taking part.

This can also be used as an opportunity to try out new kit.


Food and drink

Food is worth planning well. Ideally you don't want to eat junk food from service stations - it'll cost loads more, and it's not going to give you as much long lasting energy as some healthy snacks. Go for wholegrain and wholemeal foods, as these carbohydrates provide energy for longer.
