Saint Catherine’s Events

The increasingly popular world of obstacle courses are a great, fun way to challenge yourself and raise vital funds for patient care at the same time. Popular choices for this include Yorkshire Warrior and Tough Mudder – but feel free to find a course you like the look of and go for it!


There are now many popular walking routes that will push you physically. You could take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks, where you’d ascend Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough or go even further and tackle the National Three Peaks, which involved climbing the highest three peaks in England, Wales and Scotland – Scafell Pike, Mount Snowdon and Ben Nevis.

If you don’t want to climb you could walk along The Cleveland Way or The White Rose Way, both of which are beautifully scenic routes that will take you along of Yorkshire’s most famous and picturesque scenery.
