Age UK Yorkshire 3 Peaks

Yorkshire 3 Peaks for Age UK

On Sunday Trev and Charlie took a group of 15 participants from AGE UK around the route of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks.

They set off at 08:10 and it quickly became apparent that there was a wide range of experience within the group. Some were regular hill walkers and some had a lot less experience. The group quickly split with Charlie taking the fastest 10 and Trev bringing up the rear with 5. They continued around the route pretty much in this formation with 9 of the lead group of 10 completing the route in under 11 hours (some even raced off ahead on the last peak and just missed a 10 hour time).

Andrew Fearnley from Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees had these kind words to say regarding the day.

“Both Charlie and Trev showed good leadership skills and were very helpful to all members of Team Age UK. I have no hesitation in recommending Lupine Adventure Co-op and the excellent service they provide, to any other group who are doing a similar challenge event.”
