Organiser's Description

Skipton 3 Hills Events

Fundraising for Breast Cancer Haven

The Skipton 3 Hills events are a combination of fell running and urban orienteering, based around Skipton and taking in the tops of our three local hills, Skipton Moor, Embsay Crag and Sharp Haw.

Competitors use the MapRunF app to record start and finish times, and to "punch" GPS checkpoints on the summits of the hills. The results will be collated into a leader board with prizes for each category. There are two events to choose from, depending on how far you would like to walk or run!

Skipton 3 Hills Challenge

This is the long one! Starting and finishing at the stature of Sir Mathew Wilson, outside the library on Skipton High Street, you need to visit the tops of Embsay Crag, Skipton Moor and Sharp Haw. The hills may be bagged in any order and any route on public rights of way may be taken. Getting on for 14 miles in length it will pay off to plan your route carefully in advance. Prizes for the fastest completions!

Skipton 3 Hills Summit Series

For Juniors who have missed their fell racing fix, Seniors who fancy a hill sprint rather than a longer distance, and families looking for a summer holiday project - the Skipton 3 Hills Summit Series is for you! Taking on each hill individually, the Summit Series is 3 separate courses of roughly 2 miles each. Walk or run to the top of Sharp Haw from Bog Lane, Embsay Crag from Embsay Reservoir, and Skipton Moor from Shortbank Road. Climb one hill, or all three, climb them all in a day, or one each weekend, the choice is yours. Junior age categories are Under 12 on 1st September 2020 and Under 17 on 1st September 2020.


All Skipton 3 Hills events are to be completed during August 2020. After entering, you will receive an email containing the PIN to access the course on MapRunF. To use the MapRunF app you must have a smartphone - please contact Sarah Wills if this is a problem for you. There is an excellent guide to using MapRunF, including how to set up your phone, on the Airienteers website

Please do share your photos on our Facebook page, and share our event with your friends. The entry fees for this event are being donated to Breast Cancer Haven in Leeds - after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, I benefitted first hand from the support that they offer locally.

All courses are undertaken at your own risk. Please ensure you know where you are going, and carry appropriate equipment. Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult, and it is the responsibility of the accompanying adult to ensure children know the route.

If you are walking or running with somebody else, please follow social distancing guidelines and be courteous to others. 


Enjoy your day out on Skipton's Hills!
