Leicester’s “3-Peaks” Challenge

Saturday: 10th August 2019

     Never mind Snowdonia et al, we have created Leicester’s very own “3-Peaks” Challenge. Over a gentle 18mile course, planned by our Bardon Hillexperienced guide, you will travel through the beautiful Leicestershire countryside to Bardon Hill (rest break), then onto Beacon Hill (lunch break) and finally ‘Old John’ at Bradgate Park. The walk starts & finishes at the superb Coach & Horses (A50-Markfield) and walkers/ramblers need to be there for 8am for the walk to begin at 08:30am. You should be back by approximately 4pm when I have no doubt that a nice refreshing pint will go down well !

     The course will be well marked and our guide will be leading the way, but you are advised to go at your own speed as this is not a race.


Each entrant will receive a ‘starter pack’ to help them on their way and each entrant will receive an information pack well in advance of the walk. As this is a charity walk all we ask is that you take one of our sponsorship sheets and raise as much money as you can through family, friends, workmates, drinking buddies, acquaintances etc as we are aiming to buy more Electro-Larynx machines to enable those with no voice to be able to talk again – to be without vocal communication is a terrible existence believe you me! The problem is of course that each one of these fantastic talking aids cost around £600! There will be a £25 Shopping Voucher awarded to the highest sponsorship raiser

     This is intended to be a family/fun day out to raise funds for voiceless people and dogs are welcomed providing they are kept on a lead. The walk is NOT suitable for pushchairs I’m afraid. All we ask is that a £10 registration fee be paid per walker, in advance and we will then send all information to your good selves by return.

     The Coach and Horses, MarkfieldThe Coach & Horses have extended the premises and now house a superb dining area and I can assure you that the quality of the food is excellent, very tasty, well presented & brought to your table. I would recommend anyone to try it!

There are plenty of parking spaces in the pub & area so walkers travelling to the venue by car should have no problems parking up. The pub is large & roomy so there’s plenty of space to stretch out and relax with a drink after completing your walk and the food is very tempting indeed!
