THE YORKSHIRE THREE PEAKS CHALLENGE (Y3P)
Located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park lie the iconic three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Your challenge is to summit all three peaks in 12 hours.
Your first summit of the day will see you ascend 2,227 feet to the top of Pen-y-ghent, where there will be no time to rest, as you trek on through midday and towards your second summit, Whernside, the highest peak at 2,415 feet.
Finally the afternoon will lead you on to your third and final summit, up 2,372 feet to the top of Ingleborough. With awe-inspiring views and an immense sense of achievement, you will descend back into Horton-in-Ribblesdale and the finish of your 26mile challenge.
Our team will meet you in Horton-in-Ribblesdale (BD24 0HE) on Friday 9th September 2022, there are two main car parks. The first is a small pay and display carpark with a public toilet, the second is a large field which will be manned and pay upon arrival. We will meet beside the public toilets for a 7am start as we aim to beat the crowds and finish the challenge in under 12 hours!
