Charity Link, which supports people in poverty, hardship or crisis throughout Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, is appealing for members to join it for its ‘Leicestershire 3 Peaks Challenge’ on Sunday 24th September 2017.
Having had teams tackle the National Three Peaks and Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenges previously, it wanted to offer supporters something a little closer to home and devised a unique 16 mile route which takes in the two highest peaks in Leicestershire - Bardon Hill, which, at 912ft, is just 88ft short of a mountain and Beacon Hill.
The third ‘peak’ is that of Old John Tower in the famous Bradgate Park, previous home of the nine day Queen, Lady Jane Grey.
So why not join the team making strides to help local people in poverty and see some of Leicestershire’s most beautiful (and physically challenging!) countryside at the same time.
Walk (or run!) the route with a team of colleagues or friends and family, or on your own – you’d be very welcome.
The goal is to finish the challenge in around seven hours.
To find out all the details visit www.charity-link.org/leics3peaks or call 0116 2222218.
Registration costs £15 and challengers raise extra funds to help change the lives of the most vulnerable individuals and families in Northamptonshire and Leicestershire.
