Gigg2Gigg 2019

Monday 17 Jun 2019


42 walkers set off from Giggleswick at 5am on Sunday 16 June to take part in the legendary Gigg2Gigg challenge, scaling the three highest peaks in Yorkshire - Pen Y Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in a 56km circuit to and from the school. This is not just any Three Peaks challenge, but a gruelling 16 hours of continuous walking with a total ascent of over 1,600 metres to test the limits of even the most experienced walkers.

Mark Turnbull said “This is a genuinely tough challenge for all concerned and it has been wonderful to see so many of our pupils keen to take part. Well done to all of you: you should feel proud of yourselves. Thanks also to everyone supporting the event with a lot of money raised for Ananda Marga Orphanage.”
