Scarborough lifeboat team rise to Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge
Six Scarborough RNLI personnel completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge at the weekend as a team-building exercise.
Matt Jones, Matt Marks, Mark Rawlings, Will Watts, John Senior and Lee Marton were joined by two friends on their conquest of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in under 12 hours.
The route is 24 miles (38.6km) and includes 1,585m (5,200ft) of ascent.
The peaks form part of the Pennine range. They encircle the head of the valley of the river Ribble in the Yorkshire Dales national park.
