Take on the world famous Yorkshire 3 Peaks!

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks (Y3P) is 24.5 mile (39.2km) circular trek in the stunning countryside of the Yorkshire Dales. It’s on the bucket lists of so many walkers, both in the UK and overseas, and they come from far and wide to complete the challenge in some of the very best scenery the UK has to offer.

It is a big challenge, but by walking with the Red Cross, you get the best of both worlds as you will be both in the wilderness of the Yorkshire Dales and well looked after by our expert events team. Our team of marshals, sweepers and volunteers are there to help you achieve your goals – opening up the challenge to non-experienced walkers.

It’s ideal for both groups and individuals – you’ll make so many friends with fellow walkers – and groups. It’s a fantastic team-building exercise and hugely rewarding whether you manage to complete one, two or all three peaks.

    What’s it like?

    The scenery is amazing, whatever the weather (and we had all sorts!). What an amazing sense of achievement when we finished after 11 hours... We’d never walked anywhere near that far before. It was so well supported by the Red Cross team, so we could achieve our goal. And what a fabulous reception we got at the end from the super lovely Red Cross staff and volunteers. I’ll be wearing my medal all week!
