Open Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Our Yorkshire events have now resumed for 2021! Please see our coronavirus latest update for more details and frequently asked questions, and our coronavirus policy for adjustments to our events.

We run many Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge events between April and October each year — participants can optionally raise money for any charity.

You can book as an individual or a groups of any size. We walk in groups of about ten, each with a mountain leader, to guide and navigate as required. You're able to filter up or down amongst the groups to suit your own pace.

We begin the Challenge soon after 6am in Chapel le Dale (free parking provided for our participants), walking the route anti-clockwise — Ingleborough, then Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside last, finishing at the same place.

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