Archbishop's Youth Trust take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks

On 11 September 2021, the Archbishop of York Youth Trust are taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks, raising funds to empower young people to transform society.

A team of Youth Trust supporters will be embarking on this challenge in Spring, aiming to complete the three peaks in under 12 hours. The Youth Trust are extending the invite to join to any who would like to fundraise for their work.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24 miles, including a 1585 metre ascent. The challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The walkers will gather in the morning in Horton in Ribblesdale, to then be led through the route by trained mountain guides.

Stewart Graham, Director of Fundraising for the Youth Trust, said:

“We are so excited to be embarking on this huge challenge! Archbishop John Sentamu established us over 10 years ago in Yorkshire, to help empower the young people in our county. We are expanding across the nation now, but we’re excited to be in the Yorkshire scenery whilst raising money for our vital cause of empowering more young people to support their local communities.”
