Open Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Each year, we run six Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge events which are open to all—participants can optionally raise money for any charity, without a minimum fundraising obligation.

On our Open dates, bookings are welcome for individuals and groups of any size.

We begin the Challenge soon after 6.30am in Chapel le Dale (free parking provided), walking the route anti-clockwise — Ingleborough first, then Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside last. We finish at the same place in Chapel le Dale.

£70 per person — including a £14 deposit to secure places
