The season kicks off in September when it’s time to doff your summer sloth. So, get your hiking boots on and sign up for Rennie Grove’s annual Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge on 11 September.

If your walking preference is point to point we’re offering three routes – 6.5, 10 or 18 miles. All three start from Princes Risborough School and, depending on which you pick, will take you over two or three of the Chiltern Hills. First up (and we mean up) is Whiteleaf Cross. Then it’s on to Coombe Hill and some breath-taking views.

For the short-haul hikers it’s then just a step or two to Wendover for medals and the bus home. Medium to long haul trekkers still face Ivinghoe Beacon. Those with 10-mile boots take a bus to Tring before the final ascent while those on the 18-mile route get to walk all way to the Beacon before the bus back.

By popular demand we’re also keeping the 8-mile circular walk, which last year proved a hit with families and other walkers.

More than 1000 walkers took part in our Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge in 2021. Their efforts, backed by sponsors Origin Doors and Windows, The Business Club House, Arriva Buses and a host of volunteers and marshals, raised £83,000.

Tracey Hancock, Rennie Grove Director of Fundraising said: “We are excited to see what we can achieve with this year’s challenge. It will bring people together to enjoy the beautiful countryside we have on our doorstep while raising much needed funds for local families facing life limiting illness.”

Event t-shirts are optional and can be ordered for an extra £5 when you register. Medals for all who complete their course.
