Routes & Maps - Ten Tors Challenge 2018
The Ten Tors Challenge Manned Locations
An outline map of the northern part of Dartmoor, covering an area 17 by 24 kilometres, showing the locations manned during the Ten Tors Challenge is available at the above link. The 10 Safety Controls are positioned close to roads to assist the evacuation of those unable to complete the Challenge. The 14 Check Points, on prominent features, mostly Tors but with some on Beacons and Hills, allow the routes allocated to be spread and create increasingly more difficult expeditions for the older age groups.
The 400 Teams are each assigned a route which requires them to visit at least 10 specified Safety Controls and Check Points in the order given. Teams will be allocated to 26 routes, each with its own unique problems and combination of Tors. During the Ten Tors Challenge these locations across the moor are manned by the Moor Support Group, provided by the Army, with support from Royal Navy and Royal Air Force volunteers.
The Ten Tors Challenge Routes
Although Teams will only be allocated to 26 routes for the Ten Tors Challenge, 18 x 35 mile routes, 10 x 45 mile routes and 4 x 55 mile routes have been planned and are described at the above links. This will enable the Organisers to load more equally each of the Routes used for the Challenge. The announcement of the routes that will be loaded will be made approximately 14 days before the Event. Please note that some of the letters allocated to routes have been changed.
