Ten Tors

South Dartmoor Community College has a long standing involvement with the Ten Tors Challenge, and firmly believe that it provides an opportunity like no other for our students.

There may be many challenging outdoor events in Britain today, but Ten Tors stands alone in its scale, its ambition and the fact that it is aimed solely at young people, and is now firmly established in the collective consciousness of the South West.  All those who attempt Ten Tors will undoubtedly remember it for the rest of their lives and for many it will be a life-changing experience.

Training for the Event starts months in advance with a dedicated training team. Completing Ten Tors is not easy with the terrain, distances (35, 45 or 55 miles) and often the climate all conspiring against success. It is though achievable with the right commitment, training, endurance and grit.

The Event starts and finishes at Okehampton Camp and is organised by the Army’s Headquarters South West with support from the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force as well as civilian emergency services and volunteers.

If you would like to find out more about the training and this incredible event, please visit the Ten Tors website or contact Miss K Upton email:
