What makes the event special is that landowners have given permission for the routes to pass over normally restricted land. Participants will, therefore, see parts of the Dales not normally open to the public.
“All in all, this will make for most pleasant and scenic routes,” said a CRO spokesman.
The Cave Rescue Organisation was formed in 1935 and is responsible for both surface and underground rescues in the Three Peaks areas of the Yorkshire Dales.
Rescue, however, does not come cheap.
The organisation recently purchased a Land Rover Ambulance equipped with the latest facilities, for just over £60,000, and this from an organisation that relies totally on public support to fund its activities.
People wishing to take part in the challenge can log onto cro.org.uk/challenge where they will find details and instructions on how to take part.
