Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge
Jun 22 2019
The Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge ascends the three highest peaks in Yorkshire (Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Inglebrough), taking in over 5000ft of ascent/descent over a distance of roughly 24 miles. It is a circular route, starting and ending in the village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale. Most people will complete the challenge within 10-12 hours, but completing the circuit in any time is both a great achievement and achievable for most. Fully qualified, first aid trained, Mountain Leader(s) from ‘Lost Earth Adventures’ will support your challenge.
Manchester Care and Repair have organised the event through ‘Lost Earth Adventures’ who charge a fee of £49 per person. As a ‘Thank you’ for taking part, Manchester Care and Repair would like to contribute towards the cost of your place on the challenge. Therefore the cost to each participant is reduced to just £20 per person. This must be received no later than 17th May 2019.
If you would like to express interest or would like any further information, please contact Mike Burgess on the details below.
