Back on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge for @simonotstreets

I’m going to be doing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge later this year – raising money for Simon On The Streets and this post isn’t so much about fund-raising .. I’ll be on that soon enough 🙂 .. but more a prompt for me to get fitter (e.g now I’ve publicly committed to it!).

Saturday 8th September. That’s the day. As this isn’t an ‘official’ event challenge, I’m sorting out the details myself (but via the helpful 3 peaks site at http://www.thethreepeakschallenge.co.uk/ ).
I’ve got some friends doing it with me although I think maybe I’m the only one doing it for charity (or for SOTS anyway).
They don’t all know each other and some I don’t get to meet up much with ‘in real life’ – so this will be a great social / shared experience.

And also this is an invite for any of my hiking friends to join me if you like. It would be great to meet some of you in person. I think, based on the blogs that I follow, that pretty much all of you are more dedicated mountaineers than me, so the 3 peaks may not be so much of a challenge for you .. but you do get to see me in all my red-faced, out-of-breathe glory  🙂

I did the Yorkshire 3 Peaks a year ago (https://halfwayhike.com/2011/07/18/3-peaks-1-monsoon-and-some-cola-bombs-completing-the-yorkshire-3-peaks-challenge/) and the weather was pretty awful.
Here’s hoping for bluer skies this year (a late summer maybe?)

Me, in ‘action’ last year:

  1. I don’t know about not much of a challenge….I have done them all many times, but always separately! I might think about it, but we will just be back from holiday the previous weekend and I doubt I’ll be at my fittest…maybe accompany you on part?……we’ll see……:)

    • Hi Jenny, yes I do. I’m on the mobile for next couple of days so can’t easily see the full page as such .. but if you click on the link near the start of the post it takes you to my justgiving page. I’ll amend the intro on that to reflect the fact you are raising funds also, that’s great 🙂

  3. Don’t worry ‘ower much’ about the ‘C’ word (as in challenge) Go and have a great day and help some people like Simon by doing so.

    I’ve no idea what I’ll be doing on 8th September – might be down south, but if I’m not committed to anything else I might well join you!!
