    Yorkshire 3 peak challenge for MIND - Now with a prize draw

    Iíve seen many great fundraisers on here Ė so figured another good cause might get some help from us TZ-ers.

    On the weekend of Saturday 27th April my brother & a team of 15 colleagues will take on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge.

    The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge is a 24 mile circuit taking in the 3 peaks of Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.

    It involves just over 5,000 feet of ascent and it is intended to be completed within 12 hours.
    This is quite a tough challenge but with the right training beforehand can be achieved in the allotted time.

    Some more info here :

    The Three Peaks - take in all three summits in one go
    The classic challenge walk - 24 miles, three peaks, 12 hours to complete the circuit. This route description will help guide you.
    But go prepared with an Ordnance Survey map and know how to use it.
    Ingleborough walk
    A route to the summit of Ingleborough from Clapham taking in some fantastic limestone scenery
    - the caves of Ingleborough, Gaping Gill and the impressive Trow Gill.
    Pen-y-ghent walk
    Many people's first peak. A classic circuit from Horton-in-Ribblesdale with good paths,
    great scenery and the impressive Hunt and Hull Pots on the way down.
    Whernside walk
    Starting from the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct this route takes you to the highest point in Yorkshire - Whernside.
    On a clear day there are great views out to the Howgills, the Lake District and Morecambe Bay.

    Oh my word, I'm absolutely gobsmacked.
    I'm really going to enjoy getting to grips with all of the complications and functions - particularly that slide rule bezel which is so up my street
    Many thanks to zelig and congratulations again to the team who completed the challenge, raising a fabulous total for such an excellent cause.

    Marvellous!

    I'm really impressed with my first Orient, there's a hell of a lot packed into it and it has received Mrs C's seal of approval. I've something of an interest* in circular slide rules so the sliding concentric bezel feature is a real bonus. Massive gratitude and respect to all of the fundraisers involved





    *Okay, more of an obsession.
