Lincoln, Monday 5th February – Tended and MacRail have today announced their partnership in undertaking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge on May 17th, 2024, in support of the Railway Children charity. This collaborative effort aims to raise vital funds and awareness for vulnerable children around the world.
The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge is a renowned endurance event that involves conquering the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, covering a distance of approximately 40 kilometres (24 miles) and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent. Tended, a leader in safety technology solutions, and MacRail, a leading railway infrastructure company, are joining forces and taking on this challenge to build awareness and raise as much money as possible for their chosen charitable cause.
