Located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park lie the iconic three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Your challenge is to summit all three peaks in 12 hours. You’ll get full support along the way by our team of experienced mountain leaders who will ensure you get the very best of this amazing experience.
Your first summit of the day will see you ascend 2,227 feet to the top of Pen-y-ghent, where there will be no time to rest, as you trek on through midday and towards your second summit, Whernside, the highest peak at 2,415 feet.
Finally the afternoon will lead you on to your third and final summit, up 2,372 feet to the top of Ingleborough. With awe-inspiring views and an immense sense of achievement, you will descend back into Horton-in-Ribblesdale and the finish of your 26mile challenge.
Why support Independent Age?
The money you raise will support people like Veronica. Veronica is 82 years old and lives in the Southeast of England. She called our Helpline as she was struggling with rising electricity bills. Veronica was relying on extra jumpers when she was cold instead of turning on the heating, to keep down costs.
The Helpline helped Veronica to understand more about the money she was entitled to. Now, Veronica is receiving pension credit. This is a crucial top up for her income.
By fundraising for Independent Age, you will provide a support system for older people going through difficult times.

• A free Independent Age top to wear for your event
