To celebrate National Walking Month in May, 12 intrepid adventurers from the Energy and Utility Skills (EU Skills) Group took on Yorkshire’s finest and biggest peaks in just 12 hours!

The challenge

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge took place on Saturday 18 May 2013 and is 24.5 miles (39.2km) long. It takes in the peaks of Pen-y-ghent (694 metres – 2, 276 feet), Whernside (736 metres – 2,415 feet) and Ingleborough (723 metres – 2,372 feet), all in one circular route. To support EU Skills’ Year of Fundraising, M.a.D 2013, the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge team will be raising money in aid of the Cure & Action for Tay Sachs (CATS) Foundation.

On the day

On the day of the challenge the weather was absolutely horrendous! As can be seen in the photos it made things a lot tougher but the team were able to complete the challenge which was a massive achievement. To sponsor, please visit My Donate here.
