Sadly I was unable to complete my final challenge – The National Three Peaks due to our lovely British Summer.
Instead, due to time constraints and my team’s availability I am now only able to do a one day challenge. As a result, I will now be completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks to complete My Year of Ultimate Challenges.
The Yorkshire Thee Peaks involves climbing the three highest peaks in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, within 12 hours. The three peaks are arranged in a triangle forming part of the Pennine range, and encirlce the head of the valley of the River Ribble. The total challenge is a total walking distance of 39.2km (24.5 miles) with the climbes being 691 metres (Pen-y-Ghent), 728 metres (Whernside) and 723 metres (Ingelborough).
This seems a perfectly fitting subsitute for the National Three Peaks and still allows me to finish my year of challenges with a climb, the way I originally intended. Now to pray that the weather holds out!
