Three Peaks of Saddleworth returns for 2021

The much loved 3 Peaks of Saddleworth walk will be returning on Saturday 3rd July 2021.

We’ve been running the 3 Peaks of Saddleworth since 2016, and it’s one of our largest events, growing in popularity year on year with record numbers putting their best foot forward in 2019 raising an incredible £13,000!

Sadly, due to the pandemic the 2020 event was cancelled and this year we’re are appealing for local people and companies to get involved and join us for the walk around the beautiful Saddleworth countryside.

The walk, which is around 15 miles, will take on local landmarks Indian’s Head, Pots and Pans and Wharmton Hill. The route is challenging, but achievable, and walkers are rewarded by some incredible views of Oldham and beyond.

We are absolutely delighted that the 3 Peaks will be returning this year. We had so many people asking us to put it on again, we’re hoping it will be bigger and better than ever before. It’s a great way to put your lockdown exercise into action and raise funds for Oldham’s young people. You can compete as part of a team, individually or even as a relay as a family, your four-legged friends are welcome too! It takes around 6 hours to complete and our team are on hand to make sure that everyone makes it to the finish line.

It’s just £20 to enter and we are asking that participants commit to raising a minimum of £30. In return for signing up, walkers will receive a commemorative t-shirt, medal, breakfast, picnic, refreshments along the route, and post-walk food at The Royal George. You will also receive support for your fundraising efforts, including help with setting up your fundraising page, images for social media, sponsorship forms and more!

The pandemic hit our fundraising capabilities hard last year, but we’re bouncing back and putting some exciting plans into action. Young people need your support now more than ever. The funds raised from this event will be invested into Oldham’s young people giving them the best start in life. I really can’t wait to see people walking for Mahdlo and having a great day out.
