The Miles for Mark, Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Posted on July 13th 2015 by

We are delighted to report the safe return of the Kitsons Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Teams!

The four walking Kitsons Teams and one running team (!) took on the three highest peaks at the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Ascending and decending through rain, mist, low cloud, in light and in darkness and covering 25 miles on uneven terrain.

Successfully taking on the steep climbs and descents of Pen-y-ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m). These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Everyone contributed to the effort with great morale, humour, skill and companionship.

We completed the challenge to raise money for Diabetes UK in memory of our friend and colleague Mark Batten. Mark was our Head Cashier for many years and he died suddenly in March 2014.

The sponsorship page will stay open for a few more weeks, so if you'd like to donate to our team then please visit the link below.
