Charity Link, an organisation supporting people in need across Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire, is looking for individuals and groups of family, friends and colleagues to take part in its annual Leicestershire 3 Peaks Challenge which this year takes place on Sunday 22nd September.

Launched in 2016, Charity Link’s Leicestershire 3 Peaks Challenge is a unique 16 mile walking or running event which begins and ends at Bradgate Park in Leicestershire. The challenge takes in the peaks of Beacon Hill, Bardon Hill (which is Leicestershire’s highest point and just 88ft short of a mountain), and the famous ‘Old John’ Tower in Bradgate Park itself.  Last year’s event saw 60 challengers take part with over £8,000 raised to help provide essential items, including food, clothing and beds for local people in need.

Charity Link hopes that more than 100 challengers will take part in the 2019 event and that over £10,000 will be raised which will provide essential items to ensure that vulnerable local people are warm, safe and fed.

New for this year is the ‘Corporate Team Cup’ competition for local businesses. Dogs who are up to the challenge and their well-behaved owners are also encouraged to take part, with medals presented to the humans and special goodie-bags for the four-legged finishers.

Individual registration is £15 with challengers pledging to raise £100 via sponsorship or fundraising. Full details on the event and registration forms can be found at www.charity-link.org/leics3peaks
