The Scarborough Three Peaks, organised by Saint Catherine’s, will take place in Sunday May 1 and will take around six hours to complete.

Participants will start at Saint Catherine’s Hospice in Throxenby Lane, Scarborough, and trek 18K (around 11 miles) via Jacob’s Mount, Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough Castle and back to the hospice.

There will be a team of Saint Catherine’s staff taking on the walk who will be guiding participants along the way.

Registration for this event is £20, which will include refreshments on the route and a Saint Catherine’s T-shirt.

Participants are asked to raise at least £100 in sponsorship.

Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager, said: “With the new year now under way, we know that many people are looking for a new challenge and wanting to look after their health and wellbeing.

“We wanted to create a new event for our supporters, and with such a beautiful and varied route right on our doorstep, we thought the Scarborough Three Peaks would be ideal.

"We hope to see lots of supporters new and old on the day – and we will be there to cheer you on!”
