Tue 22 May 2018 — TEN TORS EVENT 2018 - SUMMARY

Yet another successful Ten Tors Event covering the weekend of 12-13 May 2018. The commendable statistics below, while providing some indication to this success, do not paint the whole picture (how could they?). The countless hours of practice walks and camps, breaking in new boots, blister repair (ouch!) and adult support (parents/ carers and managers/leaders), all played their part in the success. However, the real success lies in you the individual, because the sacrifices that you have made before the 12 May indicate the sort of person you are; selfless, committed, honest, a team-player and showing courage in the face of any challenge. Therefore, whatever the outcome on the Event itself you already started as winners!!!

See you next year!

Thu 17 May 2018 — RECOGNITION OF ATTEMPTING TEN TORS

Every year there are a number of individuals and groups that do not complete the Ten Tors Challenge. The reasons for this are many including medical problems and teams finishing after 1700 on the Sunday. To be clear, the Ten Tors Challenge is exactly that, a challenge and while individual cases may become emotive we must remember that the success and allure of Ten Tors is down to the fact that it is a challenging event in sometimes very harsh conditions and a merciless environment. Therefore, while we would like all participants to be successful the shear nature of the Event makes this near impossible. Hence the sense of achievement when the challenge is met. That said, it is widely felt that there should be some sort of recognition for those participants who were unable to complete the Ten Tors Challenge. These participants, who completed all the necessary training, gave up their spare time (and their parents time) and threw everything they had into completing the challenge leave with no such recognition. Consequently, we have designed three certificates (55 Gold, 45 Silver, 35 Bronze) which establishments may wish to use to recognise the achievements of those participant that did not complete the challenge. To be clear, this is a suggestion only, and it is an establishments decision as to whether they decide to recognise the efforts of their participants not completing the challenge.

You can find the certificates under 'Forms, cards and notices' within the 'Training' dropdown tab.
