About the Event

This legendary challenge set in the Yorkshire Dales is not for the feint hearted! 40km long and with an ascent of three mountains totally over 1500m (that's higher than Ben Nevis!) this circular route is based from Horton in Ribblesdale. First ascent Penyghent, then cross Horton Moor to reach Ribblehead. Go past the famous viaduct to push on up Whernside. A steep descent to Chapel le Dale is followed by a slog over the moor, and a leg aching, lung busting climb to the top of Ingleborough. After a steep descent of Swine Tail, the route then crosses Simon Fell and the limestone pavement at Sulber Nick to return to Horton. The challenge is to finish in under 12 hours, although we will be happy just to reach the end! A fabulous event for the fit! 

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. 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. 

Places on events are limited, so if you are ready to commit to taking part you can reserve your place as follows:

  • Select the Register Now button. 
  • Complete and submit the form. NB each participant needs to complete a separate registration 
  • We will confirm your reservation within 14 days and send you an Event Participation form, and if you are new to Team George, an enrollment form.
  • When we have your completed forms, we will confirm your place on the event.
  • Prior to the event you will be sent your Team Notes.
  • All you have to do then is train, and get some sponsors!

If you have any questions or would like further infromation please contact us.
