Over the last nine years 300 people have completed this walk for Arthritis Research UK, helping to raise vital funds.


In 2015 we have two dates for you to choose from: Saturday 18th April and Saturday 12th September, join us on one of these for a great day out and a fabulous walk in the Yorkshire Dales.


The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk is a popular and demanding fully guided challenge over approximately 26 miles of lovely Yorkshire Dales countryside. The whole walk takes you through dramatic Dales scenery of limestone pavements, escarpments, caves and potholes. Beginning with registration at the Pen-y-Ghent Café in the village of Horton in Ribblesdale, about 5 miles from Settle, the walk takes in first Pen-y-Ghent (2273 feet) which dominates the village to the east.


You soon pass the dramatic Hull Pot before the famous Ribbleshead Viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle Railway as you head next to Whernside (2414 feet). In fine weather the views are breathtaking but to complete the challenge in 12 hours and become a member of the Three Peaks Yorkshire Club, you need to head towards the final peak of Ingleborough (2373 feet) hopefully before 8pm.
