Annex A

Event Backpack Camping 45 & 55m teams - The 45 and 55m Team backpack camping areas for the Ten Tors Challenge only are a combination of the National Park’s permitted areas and the military training areas.  Camping outside of these areas will be monitored and infringements raised with the Team Manager. 35m teams must camp at a Safety Control or Check Point. Jubilee Challenge Plus must camp at Prewley Moor Safety Control.

Backpack camping on Dartmoor. During Ten Tors training, you must refer to the backpack camping map on the Dartmoor National Park Authority website at Camping Map for current information on where you can backpack camp on the open Moor. The map has been updated so please refresh the site. (Control + F5).

Mapping. For Ten Tors 2024, Annex A is produced as paper mapping, which has been distributed to Team Managers. Previous versions should be ignored and destroyed. As detailed at the Team Manager’s Brief, the restrictions shown on the Ten Tors 2024 map are only in place for the Ten Tors weekend itself, with the exception of Rare Bird Nesting Areas that are out of bounds 1 March – 31 July and the private roads marked in red.

All maps used during training and the Challenge must show Out Of Bounds (OOB) areas as detailed on the Ten Tors 2024 map eg RBNA (1 Mar -31 Jul) and roads. For the Challenge, all Safety Controls and Check Points, river crossings, and restrictions to the route chosen must also be marked.

During the training period, other areas may be designated as OOB: ensure you check the Ten Tors website when planning training.

Some of the information on the Ten Tors 2024 Map, has been overtaken. The Mini Maps are up to date as at 8 Apr 2024.

Road Use. Measures to reduce the risk of road traffic incidents have required changes to road crossing and permitted use. During training, road crossing and use remain the responsibility of Establishments, remembering not to disrupt or cause a hazard to traffic. During the Ten Tors Challenge, the roads from Tavistock to Moretonhampstead through Two Bridges may not be crossed or used, except from the Postbridge Safety Control to the gate immediately North East of the Postbridge. Permitted roads and crossings with routes to be used are shown on the Mini Maps. The Highway Code must be obeyed and hi viz garments must be worn by the first and last member of a team when using permitted roads.

Gates, Stiles and Gaps. You will also see that there are green dots on the Ten Tors 2024 map. These mark the location of stiles, gates and gaps in walls and fences. This information will help walking groups and teams to plan their routes during training and the Challenge to avoid climbing over and damaging walls and fences. Please help the National Park Authority to maintain gates and stiles by reporting any damage or other problem at Report a path problem | Dartmoor . If you identify the location of other gates or are unable to report problems, please inform SWHQ-TenTors-MAILBOX@mod.gov.uk. Note that for greater clarity, the green dots are omitted from the Mini Maps below.
