Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge

This event has now taken place in 2017. Full details of the 2018 will be available soon.

You can read all about the event on Sunday 10 September 2017 here, and view all the photos from the day on our Flickr account. 

The Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge is a late-summer walk across the most beautiful countryside the Home Counties have to offer; whilst tackling the top of Whiteleaf Cross, climbing Coombe Hill and finishing by heading up the incline of Ivinghoe Beacon. This scenic event is in aid of Rennie Grove, and your sponsorship will support local hospice care.

Now in its eighth year, the walk offers you a range of lengths to suit any capability: there's a 5, 9 or evenBlack family on Ivinghoe beacon ls-min the full 18 mile option - something for everyone!

Your Sponsorship Money

Your sponsorship money helps us continue to provide end-of-life care to local patients with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses and their families. As little as £50 could fund the cost of a first assessment visit to a hospice at home patient to understand their needs and wishes and draw up a personal care plan. 

Please consider raising sponsorship to support our services. If you raise money via JustGiving, this will come directly to us, so you don't need to take any further action. You can download our sponsorship form, we would be grateful if you could write a cheque made payable to 'Rennie Grove Hospice Care' and send it to: ​The Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge, Rennie Grove Hospice Care, Rennie House, Unit 3, Icknield Way Industrial Estate, Tring, HP23 4JX. The deadline for sponsorship money to be submitted is ​Tuesday 4 October.

If you are walking this event in memory of someone, you can open a Forever Loved Fund to share memories, photos and even a video of the person you are raising money for on the day. Find out more about Forever Loved Fund here.
