Most people who fail to finish the Yorkshire 3 Peaks use the following as reasons:

  • Lack of fitness
  • Sore feet from ill-fitting footwear or other equipment issue
  • Lack of fitness (yes said twice)

Completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks is a great achievement and one that many are able to do however those who do not often overate their fitness and durability (especially in poor weather) and under estimate how tough it can actually be (again, especially when the weather is poor)
