This is one of our new offerings, and a very popular short hillwalking challenge event. The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge involves a circular walk onto the summits of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, before returning to the starting place to complete the challenge in under 12 hours.
As one-day challenges go, the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge is quite demanding, covering 40 kilometres (23 miles) with an ascent of almost 1600 metres (5250ft). Approximately half the walk is uphill and the other half downhill. We recommend training for this challenge!
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is a popular charity fundraising challenge, and can be quite busy at weekends in summer. We’re happy to support charity challenge groups by providing qualified and highly-experienced mountain leaders.
Most people take on this challenge in summer conditions, though in winter the route can be especially challenging and very considerably less busy.
We highly recommend having a non-walking driver to chauffeur you after this challenge as we expect you’ll be quite tired. Alternatively we’ll happily arrange accommodation in local bunkhouses, B&Bs or hotels, or even a wild camp.
The Yorkshire 3 Peak can also be completed as a team relay challenge or as an adventure biathlon – part on foot, part on bike.
What Our Customers Say
The Moffat/McColl family had a fantastic experience on their day out with Key Adventures. Al was a great leader and saw us safely through abseiling, raft building and ghyll scrambling. There were some nerves at the start but much laughter throughout and a great sense of achievement afterwards. Even though the weather did it's best to dampen our spirits we all had lots of fun; it really was a superbly satisfying and memorable day!
Thank you Simon and Al for looking after us so well - we would 100% recommend Key Adventures. Take up the challenge, it's so worth it!Family Outdoor Activity Event
Thank you and your team for a fantastic day last Thursday. It has been extremely well received and, despite a few aches, pains and bruises, the workplace is absolutely buzzing this morning. We now have to build on the good work that we have started.Borrowdale Team Challenge
