—Yorkshire Three Peaks Race.

A classic 23 mile fell race with ascents of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, ascent total over 1600m’s.
Runners were not only challenged by distance and terrain but also terrible weather on Pen-y-ghent, after spirits were revived by ample encouragement at the Ribblehead aid station they faced a steep climb up the face of Whernside where the weather was even worse, and a final race to clear the summit of Ingleborough before conditions really deteriorated.
Nik was running her first Three Peaks , and managed to finish despite falling and hurting her knees. Tom and Andy have run the race before, but it doesn’t get any easier.
