This Event has SOLD OUT

Join the UPojects mountain leaders and take on the famous Yorkshire 3 Peaks, covering 24 miles of hiking with over 5,000 feet of ascent.

A challenging and spectacular walk, you will tackle rolling moorland fells and rocky terrain over steep ground, whilst enjoying the wonderful sights of the Yorkshire dales.

We will meet in time for a 06.00 start at The Pen-y-ghent Cafe which has been the starting point of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Walk for many people over the years. The café operates a clock-in/out system to time, and aid the safety of walkers. A clock card machine records the start and end time of walkers. Those completing within a 12 hour period are invited to join the Café's 'Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club'.
