Event information

Do I need to be fit?

A reasonable level of fitness is needed to complete this challenge. The challenge can be made as easy or hard as you like. The smaller the peak and the more team members you have the less climbs you need to complete. 

For example:

Easier challenge – The Chevin 

Take on The Chevin with 56 climbs between a team of four people. That’s 14 climbs each of the steps.

Harder Challenge – Whernside 

Take on Whernside with 147 climbs between a team of two or three alternating, that’s 49 climbs each! 

Can people come to watch me?

Yes! Supporters can come and watch for free. The more the merrier, we will have a supporter area where friends, family and colleagues can cheer you on as you complete your steps. 

What if I don't raise £150?

You have until the day after the challenge to raise your £150. The best time for donations is often the 24 hours after your challenge when you can post pictures of what you’ve achieved.
