Organiser's Description

Due to the incredible popularity of our Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, we're delighted to bring this epic trek back and make it even better for 2022!

40 kilometres. 3 peaks. 1 day. Could you conquer the Yorkshire 3 Peaks?

In 1 spectacular day, you’ll climb 3 of England’s highest mountains, trek across Yorkshire and marvel at the unparalleled panoramas you’ll get from the peaks.

The trek may be tough but with our expertly designed route, unsurpassable challenge support and unbeatable camaraderie, you will love every step of the adventure.

Hiking clockwise through the rolling Yorkshire Dales, we’ll warm up tackling Ingleborough and beating the biggest challenge of the day, the mighty Whernside in time for lunch. Then it's one final climb up the smaller Pen-y-Ghent before we descend for a glass of prosecco at the finish line.

Now sporting your Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge 2022 medal, you can settle down for a fantastic celebration dinner and a hot shower at our campsite.

Places are limited in our group and they are like to fill up incredibly fast for this popular challenge.

FAQs

  • Do I need special equipment?

    Please bring a backpack with your own water bottle (we recommend bringing at least two litres) and you must wear comfortable hiking boots with adequate support for your ankles. Please also bring waterproof clothing as we all know what the British weather can be like! All meals are provided, but you may want to bring extra snacks you want to nibble on along the way.

  • How fit do I need to be?

    This trek is no walk in the park, but it is certainly achievable with a reasonable amount of training and we'll send all participants a realistic training plan as soon as you sign up for the challenge. We'll conquer approx. 39.2km (24.5 miles) in one day, so we recommend that you're used to walking long-distance when you enter the challenge and can keep up to the pace of 5km (3 miles) per hour for twelve hours. As we mentioned in the challenge description and itinerary, please feel free to take it at your own pace. We always have at least one first-aid trained challenge guide at the back of the group so you won't be left behind.

  • Do you have to carry your own equipment?

    We recommend carrying a 30-litres day bag with you as we walk, to keep your water bottle (at least 2 litres), the packed lunch and snacks we provide for you and your phone/camera, along with any other personal items you want to hand.

  • Is there an age limit?

    You need to be 18 years old or over to take part in The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge 2022. There's no maximum age limit. One of the amazing things about this challenge is that it brings adults of all ages and from all walks of life together for one amazing event. 15 - 17-year olds may participate if given permission by the Dream Challenges team.

schedule

We meet on the night before our trek at a cosy campsite near Horton-in-Ribblesdale. Hidden at the heart of the Three Peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales, with Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent watching us from the distance, this quaint village makes the perfect place to commence our adventure. You have all day to make your own way to the campsite, in time for our compulsory registration and challenge briefing starting at 7pm.

We’ll welcome you upon your arrival with our tents already set up, but please bring your own sleeping bag. We’ll send all participants the full details of the campsite and how to get there as the event draws closer.

You have a chance to settle down and meet your fellow trekkers. Then, our awesome Challenge Leader will explain the challenge in full and you have the chance to ask questions. Following our briefing, we tuck into our welcome dinner the campsite, before a great night’s sleep for the big day tomorrow.

Day 2
Challenge day

We fuel up with a hearty breakfast at our campsite. Then we head for our first peak, Ingleborough, standing at approx. 723m/2,237ft! We follow clear tracks through the lush countryside and get our first real taste of the Yorkshire Dales. At this time in the morning, they are at their most serene.

Leaving the sublime panoramas from Ingleborough, we hike on to discover those of Whernside. Standing at a spectacular 736m/2,415ft, the second and highest peak gives us the biggest challenge of the day. From the foot of Ingleborough, we give our legs a bit of a break trekking a flat stretch between the mountains and then embark on the mighty climb to the highest point in the Yorkshire Dales.

If you thought the views from Ingleborough were pretty, Whernside’s will take your breath away. Surrounded by rolling fields and farmland, we can see all the way to Morecambe Bay and the sea beyond.

By this stage, we’re feeling the fatigue, so we fuel up with a delicious, packed lunch and then we’re on to climb to the third and final peak, Pen-y-Ghent. As the smallest peak, Pen-y-Ghent (694m/2,276ft) is the perfect peak to end the day.

With three peaks now behind us, we drink in the incredible vistas at the top and set our eyes on the finish line back at the campsite near Horton-in-Ribblesdale. That last step is bound to feel sublime, especially with a medal and glass of prosecco waiting for you!

There will be showers and hot water at our campsite, so you can freshen up after our trek. Then, tonight, we’ll celebrate our awesome achievement with a delicious dinner at a local restaurant or pub and rest for another night in the campsite.

Of course, you are also welcome to make your own way home after dinner or to make your own accommodation arrangements, rather than staying another night at the campsite with us. Simply let us know in advance.

Day 3
Make your own way home

Today after breakfast at the campsite, we say our goodbyes and you make your own way home, no doubt buzzing to book your next Dream Challenge
