We’ve organised this fully-guided event for years so we know exactly what’s needed to help our guests accomplish the fantastic achievement of walking 25 miles through stunning Yorkshire Dales scenery which includes summiting the trio of peaks – Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-Y-Ghent.
As well as organising the logistics, our winning formula for getting challengers through the day is to guide a small group and make it a friendly occasion with plenty of encouragement on tap whether it’s in the form of handing out jelly babies or simply a timely: ‘you can do it’!
Therefore if you’re after a toughie either as a fundraising charity event or for your own personal goal-setting reasons, then read on!
Three great peaks and 25 miles’ walking in 12 hours….
Right let’s get things straight from the start – this is no ‘walk in the park’ (well, actually it is as we’re in the Yorkshire Dales National Park) but it’s a toughie and demands an early start.
However, the reward for that early start is the chance to hike through stunning scenery and enjoy a full day in the company of a small bunch of fellow challengers, while achieving something that many people will frankly think you’re a bit bonkers for doing.
Don’t be too daunted though – as long as you have a reasonable level of fitness and can dig deep for a bit of extra grit and determination it’s perfectly achievable.
To ensure you not only achieve but enjoy the challenge, we take the logistics hassle including route-finding away so all you need to do is put one foot in front of the other. Our guides are also very adept at providing the necessary morale-boosting when it’s needed!
In a nutshell:
- Bask in the knowledge you’ve completed a glorious hiking challenge
- Enjoy a ‘reet’ grand time in Yorkshire’s countryside.
- Feel safe knowing you’re being guided by fully qualified mountain leaders who also happen to be first aid trained (in the rare event something happens)
