Three Peaks Challenge - Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation
01 May 2012
Take advantage of a wonderful opportunity to view Yorkshire's
scenic countryside whilst making a difference to young people in
The Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation are looking for at least
100 people to tackle Yorkshire's three highest peaks in less than
12 hours, each raising £100 in sponsorship. With your help we could
raise a massive £10,000 to help young people in Yorkshire to
achieve their full potential.
The demanding 25-mile circular route takes in Pen-y-ghent,
Whernside and Ingleborough. Whernside is Yorkshire's highest peak
at 728m, with Ingleborough just five metres lower and Pen-y-ghent
coming in at 691m. Completing the walk in the time set is a
challenge, with terrain including bogs and rocky paths, but the
rewards are immense, including some of the finest views in
Yorkshire. On a clear day, walkers can see as far as Morecambe Bay
and the Lake District from the top of the peaks.
The Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation are looking for teams to
take on the challenge on Saturday 23 June 2012. Visit their website for more information.
Anyone who thinks they are too far over the peak to take part can
show their support by donating here.
