Walkshire

Choose Your Distance

There is no set challenge for the Tour de Walkshire. You can decide your own distance or replicate an iconic route. Lengths in your back garden with the kids, laps of your office car park with your workmates or a circuit of your favourite park with friends - the choice is yours. Here are some of our favourite iconic Yorkshire challenges to give you some inspiration. 

Master the Mountains - 24 miles 

The Yorkshire Three Peaks are made up of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The route is traditionally completed within 12 hours and takes in 24 miles including 1585m of ascent.

Conquer the Coast - 45 miles  

Yorkshire has 45 miles of magnificent coastline running from the Tees estuary right down to the Humber estuary. In between, you'll find picturesque seaside towns and villages, from vibrant Scarborough, considered to be the world’s first seaside resort, to historic Whitby, Filey and Staithes.

Defeat the Dales - 100 miles 

The Yorkshire Dales Centurion Walk encircles the Dales and visits almost every major peak in the area. It is a long-distance circular walk that takes in some of the greatest views in the county. 

Beat the Border - 450 miles  

The border of Yorkshire is 450 miles. Could you do a lap of the largest county in England? Not many people have achieved this incredible accolade. The border of Yorkshire takes in a great deal of Moorland and some tricky hills. The immense distance is the equivalent of a marathon a day over 18 days.

 

Remember, if you don't fancy taking on these specific Yorkshire themed challenges, you can simply replicate the distances to suit you and do them from wherever you are in the world.
