From 26/04/2019 to 27/04/2019
This exciting and rewarding challenge will have you trekking over the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks within a period of just 12 hours.
These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The route is extremely scenic and provides spectacular views over the Yorkshire countryside.
While it lasts just one day, this challenge should not be taken lightly as the terrain is extremely varied involving some steep ascents and descents. Participants can expect to almost cover a marathon distance by foot – but in just a matter of hours.
I want to take part
We don’t have charity places in this event, but you can still take part and help young people with cancer.
Simply buy your place directly through the organisers, and select Teenage Cancer Trust when you choose your charity.
They’ll let us know once you’ve registered, and we’ll send you a free Teenage Cancer Trust T-shirt along with a handy welcome pack filled with helpful fundraising ideas.
How much is it?
There are 2 different payment options for the Yorkshire Thee Peaks Challenge.

Self funder: You pay a £55 registration fee on booking, and then £123, 5 weeks before your challenge to cover the cost. You then raise what you can for Teenage Cancer Trust.

How you can help young people
£50 could buy a round of pizzas for a young person and their friends, which might just be the first thing that tempts a young person out of bed after a gruelling round of chemo.
£100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find out about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.
£230 could buy a real hair wig and salon styling from our Hair4U project – and help make the pain of hair loss a little easier to deal with.
£500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
£810 could provide wifi or a phoneline in a unit for a year, so young people always feel connected and can keep up with their studies.
