The Ten Tors Challenge is a two day expedition for teams of 6 young people aged between 14 and 19. Each team must visit 10 specified checkpoints requiring a walk of 35, 45 or 55 miles over the rugged terrain of Dartmoor, depending on the ages of the team. A team must be self-sufficient; camp on the moor overnight and complete the distance between Saturday 0700 and Sunday 1700 hrs.

It is an adventure that demands careful planning, determination, endurance, training, skilful navigation and teamwork by the participants. They are expeditions to be completed as a team.
