Join us for the biggest charity hike in the Yorkshire Dales and soak up the buzz and atmosphere you can only get when you're all fighting as a team for the same cause - to beat heart disease.

Covering 24 miles and 3,000 feet of climbing, this is a physical and navigational challenge – while the hike follows a well established route the course is not marked so a compass and map to navigate around are essential. You will be exposed to rocky tracks, boggy areas and some rock climbing! The first peak, Pen-y-Ghent (694m/2277ft), provides great views of the peaks to come and surrounding area. As you walk towards Whernside (736m/2415ft) marvel at the grandeur of Ribblehead Viaduct and then onto Ingleborough (723m 2372ft) for your ascent to the finish.

After the event you'll be able to enjoy a delicious hog roast and BBQ (for a small donation). Music will also be provided and an opportunity to share your event stories with your fellow participants.

Whether you're taking part as a family, group of friends, or with your colleagues, the experience of taking part in a team can't be beaten. But you're very welcome to join us as an individual and you can be sure you'll leave with some unforgettable memories.  Note that you must be at least 18 to take part in this event.
