Yorkshire Three Peaks Charity Challenge Sunday 9th June 2013 - completed in 11 hours, 57 minutes

 

Yorkshire Three Peaks Charity Challenge

This is a gruelling 25-mile trek across three of Yorkshire's highest peaks - 1600m ascent in less than 12 hours. We completed this demanding and strenous walk, as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations, and raised £7,688.75 for our two chosen charities.

Mark Reid, author of 'The Inn Way' guidebooks and qualified Mountain Leader expertly guided us across Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent - keeping us safe, well and motivated.

Here are a few photos of us completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks and some of us in training for the mammoth challenge:
