2024 Event Postponed

We’re really sad to have to announce that the 2024 Staveley 3 Valleys Challenge won’t go ahead in June as originally planned.

We are looking at possible options to stage the event later in the year. Please keep an eye on our website and social media feeds for further news.

Thanks to everyone who has been enquiring about this years’ event, we appreciate that a lot of you will be disappointed by this news. We would like to thank you all for the tremendous support over the years that the event has been running; it’s you guys that have made it as special as it’s been.

We hope to see you all again soon. 

A MASSIVE 'Thank You'!

Thanks so much to all the riders, supporters, volunteers and businesses who helped make the 2023 Staveley 3 Valleys Challenge such a success. We hope that everyone enjoyed the day (and night) and are already looking forward to next year's event.

The results from this year's event are now available on the Results page.

Don't forget that professional photos from the day are also available at SportSunday.

And finally, the reason that we put on the event each year is to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research UK do amazing work with the money raised and are making steps every day to prevent and treat the disease, which will affect all of us or someone we care about at some stage in our lives. If you enjoyed this year's event and haven't been able to do so yet, it would be great if you could donate whatever you are able on our Just Giving page, and together we WILL beat cancer sooner.
