Mon 2 May — Ten Tors Rules amendments
Some minor but important amendments and clarifications have been to the Ten Tors Rules. For your convenience, the changes are highlighted in red typeface.
Fri 29 Apr — How To Use The Tracker
An instructional video on how to use the Tracker that all Ten Tors Challenge teams are required to carry, is at How to use the Tracker. Please watch it and learn how to use this GPS/satellite communication device, which will tell the organisers where you are at all times and enable you to contact them in an emergency.
Fri 29 Apr — Ten Tors Challenge Team Manager's Survival Guide
A revised Team Manager’s Survival Guide here takes you chronologically through the Ten Tors Challenge, giving timings, explaining the procedures, highlighting good ideas and pointing out things to be avoided. Significant 2016 amendments are highlighted.
Fri 29 Apr — Ten Tors Challenge – request for help with material for finish and presentation announcement
To add even more sparkle and interest to the announcements at the Finish and Presentation, Bristol UOTC announcers are seeking material from you. The form TT Team Announcement Request should be submitted by Team Managers to UOTCBristol-PSIfirstname.lastname@example.org , preferably prior to the Event, but could be handed to the Finish during the Challenge. Do give the announcers time to read and absorb the points . Blank forms will be available at the Finish and Presentation on request. Receipt of your suggestions does not guarantee that they will be used.
Fri 29 Apr — Route selection for Ten Tors Challenge
Thank you for pre-registering your teams on line. After a rather desperate final scramble, the remaining 23 establishments either pre-registered or withdrew. There are 404 teams raring to successfully complete the Challenge. Spreading the teams evenly, we will use routes A – P for 35mile, Q - W for 45 mile and X – Z for 55 mile.
You can find these routes on the spreadsheet at http://www.tentors.org.uk/tentors/locations . It opens as a separate file usually at the bottom left of your screen. Click on the spreadsheet’s tabs, bottom left, to see the 35 and 45/55 mile routes. For the avoidance of doubt, routes Q and R of the 35 mile provisionally planned routes shown will not be used. Routes O, P and X of the 45 mile routes will not be used and for the 55 mile routes, W will not be allocated.
Route Allocations will be published on this Website at 0800 hours on Friday 6 May 2016 and displayed simultaneously at Building 136 Registration in Okehampton Camp.
