Yorkshire Challenge

Date: 23rd/24th July 2022

Join the team

Take on the Yorkshire Challenge in the beautiful Nidderdale area, on the southeast edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Walk, jog or run the course, and choose from the full 100km, a half challenge or even a 25km quarter challenge–it’s your challenge, your way!

There’s a challenge base-camp hub in Pateley Bridge with a range of camping options, car parking, and extensive hospitality and welfare services over the weekend. The full 100km route is a varied figure of 8 style route which takes in the famous Nidderdale Way, Ripley Castle, and Gouthwaite Reservoir. You’ll get full support all the way, and with half, quarter, and 10 km distance options also–there’s a Yorkshire Challenge for everyone!

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.

Challenge options

  • Full Challenge – 100km

Emma and Anna tell us why they took on a trek for Dementia UK:

The walk was both emotionally and physically challenging.  But I can’t explain how lovely the support was around. Locals left out chairs with rest stops, with glasses of water and oranges; not to mention the moral support from the other people taking part.
