A group of fundraisers will be putting on their walking boots
and taking on a new three peaks challenge
in the Chilterns.
Organisers of the Chiltern's Three Peaks Challenge hope 2,000 sponsored participants will take part in the event, which will take place on September 19th, in a bid to raise £300,000 for the Iain Rennie Hospice at Home, the Buckinghamshire Free Press reports.
The three 'peaks' in question are the summits of Whiteleaf Cross, Coombe Hill and Ivinghoe Beacon, with walkers asked to take on treks of five, nine or 18 miles.
Bus company Arriva is helping by ferrying people for free between different points in the area.
Walkers taking part may wish to invest in waterproof jackets
in case it rains while they are on the hills.
The traditional Three peaks challenges are the Yorkshire Three Peaks - which takes on the summits of Whernside, Pen-y-Ghent and Ingleborough - and the National Three Peaks, which includes the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon respectively.
