Yorkshire, UK

Test your limits by taking on the monumental Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge while raising vital funds for Ormiston Families!

This region was shaped by glaciers many thousands of years ago, and features plenty of stunning geological landmarks – striking limestone outcrops and unusual rock formations – to pique our interest as we walk.

We will also see the famous Ribblehead Viaduct en-route, part of the scenic Settle to Carlisle railway line. At a total distance of 24 miles, this challenging event will push our walkers to their limits.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Travel to Yorkshire, Arrive at Camp, Yorkshire Dales

Meeting in the Ipswich area, we will travel to Yorkshire by minibus.

We will arrive at our campsite late in the afternoon, near Chapel-le-Dale, nestled between two of our three peaks. After dinner and a thorough trip briefing, we will prepare our kit and get a good night’s sleep, ready for the strenuous challenge of the following day!

Day 2: Ingleborough & Whernside Trek approx. 12 miles/6-8 hours
