There are three types of events, one involves three mountains in Yorkshire, another is three mountains in Wales and the last means you walk a mountain in England, Wales and Scotland. They are very different charity treks, all of them are very challenging but you will need to make sure you know which one to enter
The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is 24 miles in length and is located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park covering the mountains of Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres). Usually people will aim to walk all three mountains within 12hours
The other 3 Peaks Challenge is often referred to as the National Three Peaks Challange as it consists of 3 mountains across the UK - Snowdon in Wales (1085m), Scafell Pike in England (978m) and Ben Nevis in Scotland (1345m). These three mountains are part of the challenge as they are the tallest in each country. The idea is to walk all 3 mountains within a 24hour time period meaning you have to walk up one in the dark.
The third and less well known challenge called Three Peaks Challenge Wales. This one covers Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen y Fan. Again due to the height and distance between them people usually try and complete this within 24hours
