Leicestershire Three Peaks Challenge: Registration Now Open!

Adventure seekers are being asked to take part in a tough charity challenge, which involves scaling some of the highest points in Leicestershire.

Charity Link’s Leicestershire 3 Peaks Challenge is a 16 mile walk (or run), which involves challengers tackling Bardon Hill (Leicestershire’s highest point), Old John in Bradgate and Beacon Hill to raise funds.

Last year 120 people took on the route to raise £15,000 to ensure local people are warm, safe and fed.

This year’s challenge will take place on September 24, and will start and finish at Bawdon Lodge Farm, which sits in the heart of Charnwood Forest.

“There is no doubt that this is a challenge! Along with the three main peaks, there are many other hills along the way, plus woodlands, fields, even quarries…but the event should be suitable for most people in good general health if they undertake some training,” said a Charity Link spokesman.

“The more training you do, the more you are likely to be able to enjoy the experience on the day. Most see it as more of a ‘power walk’ than a leisurely countryside amble but you can take on the challenge at your own pace.

“We usually set off around 9am and we have a tail-walker bringing up the rear to make sure no one gets left behind. Most challengers finish 4pm – 4.30pm where our support team are ready with a well deserved glass of bubbles!”

Registration for the event is now open.
