Tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks for charity
Last year TheBusinessDesk.com set out to bring Yorkshire’s business community together to raise funds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA).
We had planned and partnered with Will 4 Adventure to host a charity trek in the Yorkshire Dales tackling the three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in May 2020. Sadly like lots of the best laid plans for 2020 we were forced to postpone this fundraising effort.
Now as lockdown is lifting, we’re keen to pull on our boots and put our best foot forward while raising some much needed money for the YAA by tackling the challenge this year.
So we’re relaunching our Three Peaks charity event, which will now take place on Friday 3rd September with participants put in teams and having 12 hours to complete a mountain marathon walk taking in Yorkshire’s three biggest hills.
The teams will all be assigned before the event and include a qualified mountain leader to guide participants, so no previous experience is required. On the day teams will start the challenge at Horton in Ribblesdale between 7am and 8am with staggered starts.
We hope that you will join us for this special event that offers a chance to walk with like-minded business executives, while raising money for an amazing Yorkshire charity, which currently costs £12,000 a day to remain operational.
Whatever the weather, the trek will go ahead. However, if people are ill-equipped and their safety on the hill looks as if it will be compromised, organisers reserve the right to withdraw them from the event
Joining instructions will be provided prior to the walk.
Supporting partners for the event are YFM Equity Partners, Squire Patton Boggs, Grant Thornton and Endless.
