To complete the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, you need to have a certain level of fitness. No previous mountaineering experience is required for this trip, however, the fitter you are the more you will enjoy your day. This is a long walk, covering approximately 23 miles whilst ascending the 3 highest peaks in Yorkshire, therefore prior training walks and visits to the gym will undoubtedly add to your overall enjoyment of the trip as well as your ability to complete it. We recommend that you follow a fitness plan in preparation for your challenge, an example of one will be sent to you when you have confirmed your booking. Although the fitness plan we will send to you has been devised by a fitness professional, this is only provided as a guide and you should seek professional advice before starting your own fitness regime.
