Do the charities use the "non-boggy" route

I am doing the three peaks with the British Heart Foundation in July, does anyone know if they use the alternative "non-boggy" route? They have provided a map on their website but I don't know the area well enough to know if they do or not.

Having looked at the British Heart Foundation website, I see that for their 2014 charity event they are still identifying using the route that crosses Todber, Black Dubb & Red Moss's (i.e. 'The Bog') - if you want to avoid it ('The Bog' that is) 'The Guide' will get you round.

I've also just realised (09/04/2014) that the Alzheimer's Society and the Red Cross have events on the same day as the BHF so there's bound to be people taking the new route that avoids 'The Bog' too, I wouldn't worry about it - it's adequately waymarked and a very obvious route.

I dont know but what is certain is that their competitors appear to use the entire route as one big dumping ground. Did the route on Sunday 22nd June the day after a few big charity walks and the amount of litter was disgraceful. Especially the summit of Penyghent which was a tip.

Worthy causes - very much so. But people need to take their rubbish home. Or at least dispose of it when they can - Horton, Ribblehead, Philpin etc.

The British Heart Foundation have since indicated that their 2014 Challenge 'event' will take the route over Whitber/Sell Gill Hills that avoids 'The Bog'.
