Ten Tors Challenge

Wed 27 Sep 2017: TEN TORS 18, BRIEFING DAY INFORMATION

The Establishments selected to take part in Ten Tors 12-13 May 2018 will shortly be listed for Ten Tors Challenge (TTC) http://www.tentors.org.uk/tentors/ten-tors-teams and the Jubilee Challenge JC http://www.tentors.org.uk/jubilee/jubilee-challenge-teams . The next step is to attend the Briefing Day opening at 0900 hours on 14h October 2017 at Okehampton Battle Camp, EX20 1QP with the welcome at 0945. Approach through the centre of Okehampton.

Every participating Establishment must be represented by a Team Manager, or Deputy Team Manager or Group Leader for each of TTC and JC, who will be present at Okehampton Battle Camp during the Challenge in May 18,. Additional places are available, but will only be made available in special circumstances justified to SWHQ-TenTors-MAILBOX@mod.uk at least 7 days prior to the briefing, so that catering and administration can be arranged.

Team Managers must have attended the briefing within the 3 years preceding TT18 eg in 2015, 2016 or 2017.

Team Selection has now closed; not every Establishment will have been allocated all they had asked for. However, there are always teams dropping out throughout the run-up period to the Event; with the reserve list used to backfill these teams. We can accept teams from the reserve list as close as 3 weeks before the Event and in 2017 more than 50 teams originally on the reserve list took part. PLEASE NOTE: if your Establishment has not qualified by attendance at the Briefing, your team will be removed from the allocated and reserve lists.

The programme will consist of briefs, in large and smaller groups, by representatives of various organisations that have input into the Event. This will include information about new and current rules and routes, equipment, training and safety as well as briefs by the Duchy of Cornwall, National Park Authority, and Dartmoor Commoners. The cost of the Briefing is £5.00 per person (no cost for entitled personnel), payable by cash only on arrival please. Receipts will be available on request. In addition, a hot lunch and hot drinks will also be provided.

Parking is on the main square only. Security passes will be e-mailed to Team Managers.
