Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Welcome to the home of the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes in the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

How to take part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

You can complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge either as part of an organised event, or as a self organised group. We've got three dates available this year, or we can arrange private events for large groups.
