All walks start at 7.00am (meeting time is 6.45am). An early start as this is a 12 hour walking challenge.
Why so many Fridays? Weekends can be extremely busy so joining a walk on a Friday will be dramatically quieter.

Our Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenges are fully supported

We provide checkpoints where you can get refreshments, top up your water, have some snacks, and we can even drive you back to Horton if you need to dropout. This is a fully guided small group walk so you will be with one of our Mountain Leaders every step of the way.

Where does it start?

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge will start and finish in Horton in Ribblesdale. The walk is a very early start (6.45am meet) so we suggest staying in the area before.

Is it for me? 

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is extremely tough and you will need a very good level of fitness to complete the walk. We highly recommend training for this challenge and ensuring you are prepared for a very long day in the mountains. We will provide a training plan that will help you prepare for the challenge.
