How do I register?

Just click on the register button at the top of the page and away you go!

How much does it cost to register?

Registration is £30! all we then ask is that you raise a mimumum of £300 for your Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge. We'll send you a fundraising pack filled with goodies to help you raise your target and we'll be with you every step of the way.

Can we register a team?

Unfortunately, not. This is because there is a registration fee of £30 per person and specific details are needed for each person. This means everyone must sign up individually.

When does registration close?

Registration closes 1 month before the event date or when we hit our participant limit of 50 people (whichever comes first) so sign up quickly to avoid disappointment.

What happens once I’ve registered?

You will receive a welcome email from The Children’s Hospital Charity with lots of helpful advice as to how to start your fundraising. You will also receive a fundraising pack to help you on your way. 

Can I get a Team Theo charity t-shirt to wear?

You can request a charity t-shirt when you register for the event. This will be sent to you with your fundraising pack.

How do I fundraise?

When registering for this event, you will be encouraged to set up your personal fundraising page. Once set-up you can let your family, friends, relatives, co-workers, classmates and neighbours know you are participating, share your fundraising page with them and ask them for a donation. Remember, it’s for a really good cause. You will be surprised how many will support your efforts.

There’s lots of helpful information, tips & resources we can send you so, if you need anything specific please let us know by contacting [email protected]

What is the fundraising target?

We are asking each person taking part to raise a minimum of £300.

When is the mimumum sponsorship due?

We ask that the mimumum sponsorship of £300 is raised at least one month before the challenge. However, as long as we can see your fundrasing there is no time pressure. Please do contact the charity team to discuss if there are any problems.

Where will my fundraising go?

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is a specialist children’s hospital, providing world-class care for children all over Yorkshire and across the UK. The Children’s Hospital Charity makes Sheffield Children’s Hospital even better, by creating an environment built with children in mind. Your donations will help us support Sheffield Children's where it is needed most.

How do I pay in any offline fundraising?

Ask people to donate directly to your online fundraising page. That way the money will automatically come direct to us and you don’t have to chase anyone to collect their money (please note online fundraising pages will take an admin fee off your overall sponsorship raised).

If you’ve collected cash then you can pay the money in by sending a cheque made payable to ‘The Children’s Hospital Charity’ at The Children’s Hospital Charity, Western Bank, Sheffield S10 2TH.

You can also send your money in via bank transfer, please email us at [email protected] for bank details.

If you’re collecting offline donations please ask your supporters to fill out a Sponsorship Form and tick the Gift Aid Box, if applicable.

What distance is the Yorkshire Three Peaks?

The challenge will be to complete the 25 miles trek within 12 hours, as then we’ll be able to join the official “Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club”, but of course, we can also enjoy this stunning challenge at our own pace.

What’s included with the Yorkshire Three Peaks?

  1. A fully qualified Mountain Leaders with years of experiences and up to date first aid qualifications. 
  2.  Joining instructions with itinerary.
  3. A recommended kit list and training advice.
  4. Support Vehicle with first aid trained leaders on hand. 
  5. A certificate of achievement in completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks. 

What do I need wear?

While conditions may be sunny or tranquil at the start of the walk, things can be very different at the top of a hill so packing for the worst case scenario is always best.

A kit list will be sent to you after registering detailing all the things you need for this challenge. 

Who can take part?

Anyone can join us on this challenge! However, you'll need to have a good base level of fitness in order to complete it. You need to be 'comfortable' walking for 12 hours and be able to walk on rough, steep uneven terrain.

The minimum age is 16 and under 18s will need to be supervised by a adult at all times.

Dogs are unable to accompany our walkers.

Are there any age restrictions?

Minimum age is 16 years old. Parental or legal guardians’ consent is required for those aged 16/17. There is no upper age limit, subject to health.

Can spectators watch?

Spectators are always welcome to cheer you at our start and finish line and there is even a pub at the half way line for them to visit. 

We would strongly recommend having someone who is not participating in the challenge, to drive you there and especially back home at the end. Alternatively, you  could also arrange for accomodation nearby. 

Dogs are not permitted to join us on the challenge. 

Where do we start the walk from?

All our guided Yorkshire Three Peaks events start in Horton-in-Ribblesdale. We park in the national parks carpark which costs £4.50 for the day. There are other carparks which are cheaper but by paying in the national parks carpark the money generated goes back into looking after the paths etc on the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

What happens if we can't complete the challenge and need to drop out on route?

We have a support vehicle which if for any reason you feel like you want to stop at the 2 check points on route 10 miles in and 18 miles in, we will transport you back to the start. 

We'll also have fully first aid trained guides to help you with any injuries along the way!
