Its the final leg of the Virtual 3 Peaks. Ingleborough. 2356ft by 8pm on Sunday please.
As an extra challenge, the Steve Allsop Prize will be awarded to the person getting to the top in the least amount of miles. After that you can go as far as you like. So once you make the 2356ft, let us know how many miles you’ve done it in.
After that it will be the chase for the King of the Mountain Prize (max ascent).
Lets see some hills selfies please!
This section is stunning. Its almost 1500 ft downhill to the valley and Chapel-le-dale and then 1500ft back up to the summit of Ingleborough. From the valley it’s a steady uphill from the road over some world class limestone pavement, and then a killer climb up past Mere gill on some quad busting stone pitched path all the way to the top. After that its a 4.5 mile dash back to Horton in Ribblesdale, pretty much all downhill. You’re nearly home, see you in the pub before last orders. God bless England. You’ve got to run this while singing the hovis theme. I’m not crying, I’ve just got dust in my eye…
