This is an extremely challenging 26-mile walk over the three highest peaks in Yorkshire: Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. These peaks are all about 700 metres high, and the walk takes 10 to 12 hours to complete.

Starting in the village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale you will tackle the first – and steepest – climb up to the top of Pen-y-Ghent. One down, two to go! There's then a gradual descent over which you cover about eight miles. After passing by the spectacular Ribblehead Viaduct you climb up and along flat-topped Whernside, before a steep descent. It’s then time to tackle the final hill: Ingleborough, before a gradual grassy descent back into Horton-in-Ribblesdale to collect that well-deserved medal.

A team of experienced mountain guides will be with you every step of the way, however, a good level of fitness with prior training is required to take part in this challenge. After completing the challenge grab your medal, refuel and celebrate with the Marie Curie team.
