Three peaks for four legs

Been asked to give this one a push...

On Sunday 19 September The Iain Rennie Hospice at Home is holding its Chiltern Three Peaks Challenge, and dog owners are invited to enter their four-legged friends for free.
IRHH hopes that 2,000 walkers will bring their pooches to walk five, nine or 18 miles along the Chilterns Ridgeway. The charity aims to beat the £80,000 raised last year to help patients across the Chilterns with life-limiting illnesses who wish to be cared for in their own homes.
If every walker raises £150 in sponsorship – which in itself pays for one day’s specialist care – IRHH could fund one of its nursing teams around the clock for a whole year.
All walkers will complete the five-mile route from Princes Risborough to Wendover, taking in two peaks: Whiteleaf Cross and Coombe Hill. IRHH will be running a BBQ in Wendover so walkers and their dogs can recharge their batteries and rest their feet. For the first time this year, walkers can then complete the entire 18-mile route by continuing on to the third peak at Ivinghoe Beacon.
Entry costs £15 for adults and £7.50 for children – and dogs go free! The charge includes a T-shirt, transport on the day, a fundraising pack and a medal. Walkers will also receive a Jordans Frusili bar as the company is one of the event’s sponsors. Further details about the event and how to enter can be found at
