Amazing scenery in the Yorkshire Dales
Looking to lace up your boots for a real adventure in 2022? We bring you the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge. This epic trip actually packs in more ascent than Ben Nevis.
About & Details
The Yorkshire 3 Peaks walk tackles the three peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in one 25-mile circular route. Whernside is the highest point in Yorkshire, and the whole route is contained within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The challenge is to complete it in under 12 hours, and as they say in these parts, it’s a reet grand day out in one of the loveliest areas of North Yorkshire.
We’ll warn you though, it’s seriously tough. You’ll face 1585m (5200ft) of total climbing with an equivalent amount of often steep descent. This on top of the distance makes it a proper adventure challenge.
How difficult is the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge?
It’s a tough day out that’s for sure, but it's a great challenge. Although the peaks aren’t particularly high, you’ll still face three big climbs and some steep downhills. Added to the almost marathon distance, it’s a challenge of epic proportions.
How fit do you need to be for Yorkshire 3 Peaks?
If you’re a regular hillwalker you’ll be fine, but if you’re not used to longer distances you’ll need to train. Drop-out rates are high and are mainly due to walkers underestimating the challenge.
Walk over plenty of rough, boggy, and rocky terrain to build fitness and endurance. Think hills. The more you can find to walk, run or cycle up, the better.

Buy a one way train ticket to Leeds to arrive by 8 pm on Friday.
We usually drive together in our minibus from London and back, but our hostel reception shuts at 10 pm, and most of you have to work on a Friday. Hotels are too expensive.
To make this work, you will take a train from London to Leeds on Friday night to arrive by 8 pm. The train ride is 2 hours, but driving would take us 4 hours or more.
Our minibus will be waiting for you at Leeds Station and drive you to our hostel just in time to check you in.
The minibus will take you around Yorkshire and then back to Kings Cross Station.
We will have breakfast at the hostel and buy packed lunches plus snacks in a local supermarket.
The hostel has a self-catering kitchen which you can use if you prefer.
Dinner on Saturday will likely be at the hostel but this will be confirmed closer to the day.
