Challengers Wanted For Charity Link’s Leicestershire 3 Peaks Event Sunday 23 September To Help Change Lives Of Local People In Hardship

Leicester based charity, Charity Link, is looking for people to take on its annual Leicestershire 3 Peaks Challenge in September to help improve the lives of local families living in hardship.

Launched in 2016, Charity Link’s Leicestershire 3 Peaks Challenge is a unique 16 mile route which begins and ends at Bradgate Park and takes in the peaks of Beacon Hill, Bardon Hill (Leicestershire’s highest point) and Old John Tower in Bradgate itself. The target time for challengers to complete the challenge is seven hours. 

Challengers can also choose to run the route which includes some of the county’s most beautiful – and physically challenging - countryside, including Broombriggs Farm Country Park and Billa Barra Hill Nature Reserve. 

Taking place on Sunday 23rd September 2018, Charity Link hopes that this year’s challenge will beat the fantastic sum of £6,000 raised last year after 60 challengers took part in the challenge. 

Charity Link works throughout Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire to support individuals and families facing hardship and crisis. The charity provides essential facing. 

Due to the unique way it works, for every £10 donated to the charity it can raise £50 from Charitable Trusts around the UK. This means that every challenger raising £100 in sponsorship will actually help to provide £500 worth of essential items to local people in need. 

To find out more about the challenge or to register visit or call 0116 222 2200. Charity Link would also be delighted to hear from local businesses interested in supporting the event, with Bawdon Lodge Farm in Nanpanton once again offering challengers a welcome coffee stop en-route and Charnwood Accountants sponsoring challenger medals.
