Description

In March 2021, Darlo Bootcamp are putting their lockdown gains to use and taking on The Wharfdale Three Peaks 26 Km Or 16 Miles test.

The Wharfdale Three Peaks

The Wharfdale 3 Peaks is in the heart of the stunning Yorkshire Dales in a village called Kettlewell. Although known as the little sister of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks it can be just as challenging!

The Route lacks purpose-built paths and instead includes bogs, moorland and farmland. It includes 3 summits, Great Whernside, Buckden Pike and Birks Fell with 1145 meters of ascent.

Great Whernside

The name Whernside means ‘hillside where millstones were got’. With Gritstone blocks and boulders and a trig point to mark the summit, this will get the Boot campers warmed up nicely for the rest of the day.

Buckden Pike

The 2nd of the Peaks has a memorial cross dedicated to the memory of five Polish airmen of the Polish Air Force 18th Polish Operational Training Unit, based at RAF Bramcote, who crashed their Wellington Bomber on the 30th January 1942.

Although not the biggest ascent of the day, they have some amazing views to look forward to here!

Birks Fell

The longest of the peaks this may be the most challenging part of the day and the Boot campers will need to dig deep to get to the end. We are not ready for the cool down just yet.

Phys Complete

These guys are serious about testing themselves physically as well as mentally so this should make for an epic day for the Darlo Bootcampers.
