THERE are some walks in the park that are definitely more of a challenge than others.
And now for the third year running we are looking for outdoor enthusiasts keen to take on the ultimate park event – the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
The 26 mile challenge takes walkers through the stunning Yorkshire scenery of the Dales National Park, starting with smallest of the peaks, Pen-y-ghent, before going on over 12 hours to tackle the peaks of Ingleborough and Whernside, climbing a final total of 1585 metres!
Our team will be taking up the challenge on Saturday June 13, with participants paying a £30 deposit fee and then raising a minimum of £200 per person – all of which will go to our patient care.
“This is a real challenge for anybody who wants to tackle some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery,” said our Community Fundraising Assistant Ellie Tomlin.
“Last year we had more than 40 walkers cross the finish line in less than 12 hours and their fantastic effort and enthusiasm meant that the day raised more than £17,000.
“This year we aim to do even better – and hopefully we’ll have the sun shining to help us on our way!”
