Three Peaks challenge

Postby The Old TomCat » Thu Jan 30, 2020 8:50 pm

The EFL are organising a Three Peaks challenge for MIND.
Information is on the FGR website:

Conquer Yorkshire's three tallest peaks Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in one day
Accomplish an ascent of 1,532m – higher than the UK's largest mountain
A marathon distance trek – but with three hills
Get your mates together to represent your club
Help raise money for Mind, so that no one has to face a mental health problem alone
This summer, we’re joining Mind for Mind United, the ultimate challenge to raise funds and awareness for mental health. We’re heading to one of Britain’s wildest national parks, the Yorkshire Dales, for a 12-hour hiking challenge over the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks.

Uniting people from across the football community, this challenge is a test of fitness, endurance and team spirit.

Participants can expect to cover almost a marathon distance by foot – and ascend a total amount that exceeds the height of Ben Nevis!

Get involved, hike with old mates and new mates. By taking part you’ll be raising funds to help Mind deliver life changing support for the 1 in 4 of us that have a mental health problem.


Whoever you support, we support you.

Get your mates together

I'm far too old and unfit to volunteer the walk but am prepared to help in the back-up.
I'm sure there are a few or more than a few FGR supporters who would be prepared to enjoy the walk so I'm wondering what the club will be doing to encourage them, such as a fitness programme etc.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
