Nestled within the Pennine Range of the Yorkshire Dales National Park lie the iconic three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Your challenge is to summit all three peaks in 12 hours, so that more people living with a terminal illness can get the care and support they need.
Your first summit in the early morning will see you ascend 2,227 feet to the top of Pen-y-ghent, but there will be no hanging around, as you trek on through to midday and your second summit, Whernside, the highest peak at 2,415 feet.
Finally the afternoon will lead you on to your third and final summit, up 2,372 feet to the top of Ingleborough, with awe-inspiring views across the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Team Marie Curie want you to look and feel the part when you’re exploring the great outdoors. So along with your welcome pack, which will contain lots of great fundraising advice and support, you’ll get your breathable high-tech trekking T-shirt to wear on the day.
You’ll also receive advice on the kit you’ll need to face the elements, and training to make sure you’re in the best shape possible to go the distance.
You can look forward to support from our team of highly trained mountain guides on the day. And in addition, our fantastic team of staff and volunteers will greet you with a warm welcome as you arrive. They’ll also celebrate your success as you finish your challenge, with a post trek reception and medal for every trekker to wear with pride.
You’ll leave with stories to tell of your amazing adventure and the friends you made along the way, safe in the knowledge that you’ve helped Marie Curie offer vital care to people and families living with a terminal illness.
