Training for the Yorkshire Three Peaks
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is a very demanding challenge walk over mixed terrain with the occasional scramble - achievable to those with good levels of physical and mental stamina who have well-fitting boots and who have prepared well.
Steep crags, bog and unexpected weather on high ground set this apart from other lower-level marathon walks. Sore knees, blisters, torn muscles and other niggles may make the difference between successful completion or not, so your training should be started early enough to flag up any weaknesses.
As with all active challenges, the more training you put in then the more you'll enjoy the walk itself.
