On June 24th 2017 I am undertaking the North Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Silverline Memories.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is a demanding but rewarding walk which takes in the summits of Pen-y-ghent (694 metres - 2,276 feet), Whernside (736 metres - 2,415 feet) and Ingleborough (723 metres 2,372 feet) all in one circular route. There is no set starting point, but the vast majority of walkers start at Horton in Ribblesdale, taking in the summits in the order shown above.
The walk is 24.5 miles (39.2km) long and takes in approximately 5,000 feet (1,600 metres) of climbing. The walking is over a variety of terrains and the paths, especially over the previously boggy sections, have been improved immensely over recent years by work undertaken by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.
The walk will take place on Saturday 24th June 2017 and will start at 0730 from the pay and display car park in Horton in Ribblesdale. The walk follows a circular route which finishes back at the car park so there is no need for additional transport arrangements. Estimated walking time is 12 hours.
