Junior George Mountain Challenge
Time & Location
About the Event
Set in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, the event is for members of Junior George - children aged between 8 and 15 years - when they will take on the mighty Penyghent. This 11km circular walk is based from Horton in Ribblesdale and follows the route of the iconic Yorkshire Three Peaks up the southern end of the mountain. This involves some steep ascent over rocks to reach the summit plateau and will give the junior members a real mountain climb feel! Leaving the summit our route crosses Horton Moor then follows the Pennine Way back to the village.
In order to take part, Junior Members will need permission from their parent/guardian and must be accompanied on the walk by a responsible adult. The responsible adult can take up to three children with them. When registering, please can you add into the comments field the name of the parent/guardian. If you have any questions please contact us.
An Event Leader will co-ordinate the day, guide the group to ensure you stay on route and to help where required. They will provide in advance Team Notes for the event to ensure you are prepared, as well as undertake a full Risk Assessment. However please note that participants do so entirely at their own risk and should ensure they are suitably equipped, physically fit and suitably prepared to undertake the event. For Junior George events the Event Leader will be assisted by other Team Members to ensure the event goes smoothly and safely. Entrants are required to complete an Event Participation Form for every event in advance, and also enrol with Team George if this hasn’t previously been done. Please also note our team ethos is that we start, undertake and finish events together, as a team.
There is no charge for participation, however hope that participants will make every effort to raise funds for Candlelighters - we aim to achieve a team total of at least £1000 per event. Sponsorship can be made either via the event Just Giving Page or we can supply you with an official sponsorship form.
