The Yorkshire Three Peaks Charity Trek

Lace up your hiking boots and climb toward cures for brain tumours – starting with the Yorkshire Three Peaks! 

One the Yorkshire Three Peaks, which will be first in a series of challenges for The Brain Tumour Charity
1 June 2024
Yorkshire Dales
Registration fee:

When you or a loved one is diagnosed with a brain tumour, you know there’s a steep challenge ahead of you. Help us even the playing field by tackling the first part of our Climb for Cures charity challenge – The Yorkshire Three Peaks – and raising funds so we can beat brain tumours sooner. 

This one-day trek will see you conquer the three highest peaks in the Yorkshire Dales – Pen-y-Gheny (694 metres high), Whernside (736 metres high) and Ingleborough (732 metres high). 

This charity hike is set in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, so you’ll be taking on your charity challenge against the backdrop of an area of outstanding natural beauty.  

Although the scenery is stunning, this isn’t just a walk in the park. You’ll be hiking more than 24 miles in a single day and ascending over 1,600 metres in total. It’s a huge achievement to tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks and we hope you’ll find it so rewarding you’ll join us for the second part of our Climb for Cures charity challenge in 2025 – the Peak District 25k! 

Charity trek with three epic peaks and one urgent goal – accelerating cures for brain tumours! 

Every day, 34 people in the UK are given a devastating brain tumour diagnosis. For these people and their loved ones, cures simply can’t wait! When you sign up to Climb for Cures, every mile you hike, every metre you climb and every penny you raise, will help give hope to those affected by brain tumours.

Although there are three peaks in this route, you do not have to complete them all to be a part of this challenge. If you wish to be a part of Climb for Cures but are worried you won’t be able to do the whole challenge, you can choose to do one, two or all three peaks.

There will be transfers back to the start location after each peak.

Regardless of the number of peaks you choose to complete, the event cost is the same.

Absolutely, we would be delighted to have you and your team take part. Each member of your team will need to book their place on the event via the booking platform and complete their profile and medical information. Email events@thebraintumourcharity.org to tell us your team name and who you will be taking part with.

You can also set up your JustGiving pages as a team so that it shows your collective totals. If you need help doing this contact events@thebraintumourcharity.org and we can send you a How To guide.

Accommodation is not included as part of your challenge. There are several accommodation options in the immediate area if you wish to stay near the start location on the night prior to, or after the challenge.

We have just uploaded an Accommodation Information sheet to the account hub. This document can be found in MY CHALLENGES > Challenge documents > general challenge documents. On the Global Adventure Challenges website.

You will be able to access this once you are registered. To access your account hub you need to go to https://www.globaladventurechallenges.com/ and in the top right-hand corner click on participant login.
