Would you like to join a team of up to ten people taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk to raise funds for Advantage Africa’s life-changing work in Kenya and Uganda? Then why not join us for an amazing weekend of hiking, scenery, friendship and fundraising? You can choose between June or September for your challenge.
This famous walk involves reaching the summits of Whernside (2,415 ft), Ingleborough (2,372 ft) and Pen-y-ghent (2,277 ft), collectively known as the Three Peaks. The mountains, which form part of the Pennine range, encircle the heads of the valleys of the River Ribble and of Chapel-le-Dale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The Three Peaks Walk, first achieved in 1887, covers a distance of 26 miles with over 5,000 ft of ascent and descent. The route takes in some of the UK’s most stunning and historic scenery, including the magnificent Ribblehead viaduct where we will start and finish our trek.
The Challenge will begin with a briefing on the Friday evening and the hike will commence at 6.30am on Saturday morning. There is a fee of £95 for all participants which covers Friday and Saturday nights’ bunkhouse accommodation, Friday supper, Saturday breakfast, packed lunch, snacks and supper, Sunday breakfast, and guides’ expenses so that all funds raised go directly to Advantage Africa. We request you aim to raise at least £500 in sponsorship for Advantage Africa.
It will be strenuous but fun and you can expect to make new friends while on the hike. Our intention to safely complete the Challenge as a team will override our goal of completing the walk within 12 hours.

Too far to drive? We're exploring the possibility of a weekend Three Shires Way Challenge starting near Milton Keynes and finishing at Grafham Water (19-25 miles each day depending on whether you walk round the lake at the end or not). Please email email@example.com for updates.
We look forward to hearing from you!
