More than one thousand walkers and hundreds of dogs walked the chalk in the second annual Chilterns Three Peaks Challenge in aid of Iain Rennie Hospice at Home.
Most walkers rose to the challenge and walked between and up all three peaks, a total of 18 miles. Around 100 participants opted for the five-mile route, which took in Whiteleaf Cross followed by Coombe Hill.
They then enjoyed a BBQ lunch in Wendover before catching the Arriva bus back to their cars parked in Princes Risborough. Others caught an Arriva bus out to Tring station, where they could re-join the route and climb Ivinghoe Beacon to complete the nine-mile trek.
Walkers received their medals and had their photos taken at the top of the Beacon. Photos are available to buy at www.skmstudio.co.uk Walkers were encouraged to raise 150 sponsorship each - the cost of a day's specialist nursing care.
If all participants achieve this then the 2010 Chilterns Three Peaks Challenge could smash last year's figure of 80,000 and bring in an incredible 150,000.
