Yorkshire Three Peaks – 17 September 2022

Doing the 3 Peaks for the Barnsley Hospice was an amazing experience; the scenery & the satisfaction of completing it is something I will never forget.

Gavin Coles

Doing the Yorkshire Three Peaks was a fantastic life experience and adventure. It was hard – I was certainly glad I trained in the run-up – but it was all so worth it! The sense of achievement was off the scale, and I raised an incredible amount for the wonderful Barnsley Hospice

We are delighted to be holding the first ever Barnsley Hospice Yorkshire 3 Peaks event. On 17 September 2022, you will join a group of fellow hospice supporters to climb the three most iconic mountains in Yorkshire and raise vital funds for Barnsley Hospice.

What is the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge?

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is simple. 3 mountains, 24 miles, all in under 12 hours. You will take on the three largest mountains in Yorkshire – Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough – climbing 1585m of ascent throughout the duration of the challenge.

How do I take part?

To take part, please fill out the form below to register your interest. A member of the Fundraising team will then be in touch to provide further information and answer any questions you might have. Once you are ready to go, we will ask you to pay a £35 deposit, with a further £40 to be taken from your final sponsorship total to cover costs. We ask that all participants raise £350 minimum sponsorship. Easy as that!

How does my fundraising help?

Barnsley Hospice began with the fundraising of local people and is still here today because of our community’s generosity. Over the past 28 years, we have provided specialist palliative care for hundreds of local people living with a life-limiting illness, as well as those important to them. The sponsorship you raise will help us to provide this care free of charge when people need it most.

Here are some answers to any questions you might have:

When is the challenge?

The challenge will take place on 17 September 2022, setting off at 6 am. Once you sign up, you will get a full itinerary for the day and further details will be supplied.

How much do I have to raise?

To secure your place, you will be required to pay a £35 deposit upon signing up. A further £40 from your sponsorship total will be taken at the end to cover the cost of the event. We ask for a minimum £350 sponsorship target – which our fundraising team will be on hand to help you achieve!

I am not very fit. Can I still take part?

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is a tough challenge and requires a good level of fitness to complete. If you have existing health conditions or any concerns, please consult your GP.

Will I have a guide with me?

Yes. The group will have a very experienced guide from Adventurous Ewe, the company that is leading this challenge. If you have any questions beforehand, your guide will be happy to help.

Will I be part of a group?

Yes – that’s the great thing about taking part in this challenge in support of Barnsley Hospice. You will walk alongside others that are passionate about raising money for Barnsley Hospice and will support each other through the challenge. You will even be invited into a WhatsApp group before the challenge to get to know everyone.

Do I need transport?

Yes, you will need to make your own way to Horton-in-Ribbleside – the starting point of the challenge. You will begin the challenge at 6 am, so you may choose to stay over the night before.

What equipment do I need?

You will need minimal equipment, with base layers, waterproofs and good walking boots being the main essentials. Once you sign up, we will give you a full kit list in preparation for the challenge.
