TEN TORS (TT) aims to deliver an adventurous team activity for up to 2,700 cadets and youngsters (aged between 14-19 years) that provides an appropriately demanding challenge for Service cadets, and other youth organisations, on Dartmoor National Park.

Having been an established annual event over many years, it has a well-founded reputation for effective organisation and demonstrates the responsible use of the National Park.

There is a high level of public expectation for a safe yet challenging activity and the event must embrace the local services and community groups who volunteer their services for the public relations benefit of being associated with the event (and with the Services).

TT focuses on the South West and targets primarily those in the younger age groups (that will find it most challenging). Participation is limited by the Dartmoor National Park to a maximum of 2,400 in the main event and up to 300 children with special needs in the Jubilee Challenge.

Teams of six are required to visit ten tors; on the top of each tor is a checkpoint. There are twenty-six different routes over three different distances, using a total of nineteen different manned tors. For more information please visit the Tentors web site from the Exernal links panel.
