We have teamed up with Charity Challenge to offer you this one day challenge which will have you trekking over the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks within a period of just 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The route is extremely scenic and provides spectacular views over the Yorkshire countryside.

Day 1 - Arrival and briefing
Arrive no later than 8pm at Ingleton to meet the team and for a full introduction briefing about the event. Dinner is not included, but is available at the hostel if arranged in advance.
Day 2 - Challenge Day!
And we’re off! After a very early start and a good breakfast it’s time to start trekking. The plan is to tackle Pen Y Ghent (691m) as the sun is still rising, enjoying some fantastic views across the mountain landscape en route.
After lunch, next up mighty Whernside (728m) beckons. You are now midway through the challenge, with just one more peak to complete before the end of the day!
Ingleborough (723m) is the third hurdle and the most challenging of the trio. Once at the top, take in the awesome panoramic views across the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
What goes up must come down so it’s time to descend back to Horton in Ribblesdale, where we are free to depart.
The challenge starts in Ingleton.

- A free branded Send a Cow T-shirt
