On Saturday 3 July, we are supporting Harrogate Railway Athletic Football Club to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

We are so pleased Harrogate Railway Athletic Football Club have decided to take on this monumental challenge and raise money for Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity (HHCC).

The challenge consists of walking all three Yorkshire Peaks in less than 12 hours. This includes Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, a grand total of 2,153m in elevation when you combine all three peaks.

Members of Harrogate Railway Athletic Football Club will be completing the challenge on Saturday 3 July 2021, starting and ending at Horton-in-Ribblesdale.

Every penny raised will make life changing differences to patients, staff and their families at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (HDFT).

Mick O’Connell, Manager of Harrogate Railway Athletic Football Club said, “We have been keen to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks this summer, post Covid, as it is a great pre-season team building exercise for the lads, at the same time it presented us with the perfect opportunity to raise money for our local Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity who we already work closely with.

Covid-19 presented us all with some of the most challenging circumstances over the last year, Hospitals and the NHS more than most. So it is an absolute privilege to have the opportunity to raise money for our local hospital and we hope that the footballing and wider local community will get behind us and show their support to. #uptherail.”
