Ten Tors Challenge
We are delighted to inform you that we will be entering three teams of six this year for the Ten Tors Challenge 2020.
Organised by the Army from Headquarters South West and assisted by the Navy and the Royal Air force, the Ten Tors Challenge is considered to be the largest and most highly respected outdoor walking event held nationally for young people. On the first weekend of May, students from 400 different school around the South West will set out on this challenging overnight expedition, which many past participants have described as a life changing experience.
The Ten Tors Challenge is attempted by 2,400 teenagers. The teams navigate routes of 35, 45 or 55 miles (depending on age) over the North Moor of Dartmoor, visiting ten nominated tors / check points in under two days. Teams must be self-sufficient, carrying all that they need to complete their route and stay out overnight safely whilst navigating Dartmoor’s desolate landscape.
The Jubilee Challenge is run closer to Okehampton Camp and is designed for young people aged between 14 and 21 with a range of challenging conditions who complete one of several routes suited to their abilities.
