SPF Yorkshire Three Peaks 2020

Sept 4th - Sept 6th - Introduction

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  The Steve Prescott Foundation can continue supporting  The Christie, The Rugby League Benevolent Fund & SPF Special Causes Fund as well as continuing the great man Steve Prescott’s legacy.

SPF Yorkshire Three Peaks 2020 - Full Information

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.

The Steve Prescott Foundation 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 from Accelerate Coaching who will be mountain guides on the day.

In addition, our fantastic team of volunteers will greet you with a warm welcome as you arrive for registration. They’ll also be there to congratulate you as you finish your challenge and present every trekker with a special medal which you can wear with pride. There is a post party celebration at the Dalesbridge Centre.
