The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

The Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge is 24 miles (38.6km), and includes 1585 metres (5200 ft) of ascent, all to be completed within 12 hours!

This challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y- Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 Metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres) all within 12 hours! These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the river Ribble, in the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Brief Itinerary:

Our start and finish point is in the village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale, where you will be met by the Big World Treks support team for a 06:00 briefing, prior to the 06:30 start.

As the start time is so early we advise that you find accommodation for two nights as near to the start point as you can. Staying nearby will ensure that you have time for a full night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast before starting the challenge. Plus join us for a post-challenge celebration meal.

Our guide will be aiming to finish the challenge just inside the 12 hours. If you would like to obtain a faster time or simply walk as an individual then that’s great, we encourage you take-on the challenge in the manner that suits you best, so will support you any way that we can.

The route is well marked and relatively simple to follow but an Ordnance Survey Explorer map OL2 and a compass are strongly advised. In poor visibility navigation can be difficult so we advise that you use caution and stay with our guide rather than take responsibility for your own navigation, unless you are confident in your own navigation ability.

To enhance your challenge experience and safety our paramedic, support team and guides will be in telephone and radio communication throughout the duration of the event. Logistic support is available, where you can leave spare clothing and supplies with us at the start point and then access them along the way. Firstly just before climbing Whernside then again before climbing Ingleborough, remembering to collect your belongings at the finish.
