Scale the heights of the dales this summer when Hospice Care for Children and Young People holds its Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge this summer.

is inviting people from across the region to sign up to the challenge, which takes place on Saturday 15 June 2019.

The 24-mile route takes in Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent and takes 10-12 hours to complete and a team of experienced mountain guides will be on hand to support walkers.

Sara Cracknell, events fundraiser at Martin House, said:

The Yorkshire Three Peaks is a fantastic challenge for work colleagues, friends or family to take on, as you get to enjoy some of Yorkshire’s most breath-taking scenery, while raising vital funds for Martin House.

It costs us £8 million a year to support families, so every penny raised makes a huge difference. Coming to Martin House offers a break to families, a chance to spend time together and enjoy activities which help them to make precious memories.



Martin House cares for children and young people with life-limiting conditions from across West, North and East Yorkshire, at its hospice, in hospitals and in their own homes. It also supports the whole family, including providing bereavement support.

Entry to the Yorkshire Three Peaks costs £30 and walkers are asked to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship. There are places for up to 200 walkers, who must be aged 18 or over.

The branch of GO Outdoors is also holding a special VIP on Wednesday 3 April for everyone who signs up to the walk, which includes special discounts, while KUTA Outdoor staff will be on hand to answer questions and advise on the right walking gear participants might need.
