July 12th Three Peaks Challenge – we need your help!

29 May

 This year, on 12th July, a crack team will once again take on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge. 

Can you join us?


The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes in the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, in this order, normally in under 12 hours.   The peaks are usefully arranged in a triangle, with the River Ribble and two minor B roads between them. The total walking distance is 39.2km (24.5 miles).

Here’s the plan:

o   No entry costs: so every penny you raise goes to Wesley’s Wish

o   We’ll set up your JustGiving page – so you’re all set for raising sponsorship

o   If you’re generally fit, but haven’t done much walking recently, then don’t worry about being left behind

o   Full kit list and plans for the day to follow

o   A beer or two at the end of it!

Last year’s Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge was one of 2013’s best events, raising masses towards Wes’ operation, coupled with a great day and some truly stunning views.

We’re still seeking volunteers for this year’s event – on Saturday 12th July – so please  sign up by dropping  us a note on Facebook or email timandcatherine@wesleyswish.org
