How is the group managed

Clothing and equipment

Equipment of good quality and durability could make the difference between a fantastic challenge experience and an uncomfortable one. For this challenge, waterproof and well-worn in boots or walking shoes will be indispensable. The terrain is uneven and can be very rough, so it is vital that you use boots or walking shoes with good grip. Sports trainers are not suitable.
A head torch is vital for this challenge, and you should make sure that your headtorch has fresh batteries. We would recommend that you test your headtorch before arriving to make sure that it is powerful enough for you to be able to see ahead of you during the challenge. 
A full kit list for this challenge can be found on the website.
Once you book you will have access to kit discounts with our partners Outdoor Hire and Cotswold

Training

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks at night Challenge is a long, sustained event of up to 10 hours and covering varied terrain. Therefore, it requires a good level of fitness. The ideal training for this challenge is, naturally, walking along similar terrain. However, if you do not have the luxury of living near the great outdoors, then the gym or walking in your local area are good places to start. Most training should be part of an ongoing lifestyle, but if this is not the case then you should begin training 4-6 months prior to the challenge and gradually build up. Remember to use the clothes, equipment and especially the shoes that you will be wearing on the challenge in order to get them worn in.
The more you exercise before the challenge, the more you will get out of it. Also see your Charity Challenge Fitness Training notes.

Safety

Charity Challenge considers the safety of all of our participants and staff to be a top priority, and as such we have set up Challenge Safe, one of the most advanced and thorough safety management systems in the industry. Challenge Safe formalises our ethos when it comes to safety, and brings together the procedures and risk management strategies that we use to audit all aspects of our challenges, from vehicles to accommodation to the challenge activity itself. Your welfare is absolutely paramount!
Here are a couple of important points that you should be aware of:
•    Walking at night can feel very different to walking during the day. Take time to be accustomed to the differences.
•    Rocky ground can become even more demanding during a night challenge.
•    In can get very cold on the summits, especially during the night, and you should still make sure that you have all appropriate clothing and kit, especially warm layers and waterproofs.
