2022 Ten Tors

After being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 Ten Tors is back on for 2022 (fingers crossed).

For more information about this prestigious event please visit the following website: http://www.tentors.org.uk/

This is a challenging orienteering event, which is very physically demanding, but it is exactly this level of challenge that makes it such a tremendous achievement and a lifelong badge of honour. This is the largest mass participation outdoor youth event in the UK and one of the only events of its type worldwide. Once the event starts each team of 6 will be on their own without any adult support and will have 34 hours to complete their route across Dartmoor- one of the wildest landscapes the UK has to offer. To prepare them for this we use a progressive model of training, gradually increasing the distance, difficulty of terrain and independence, so that by completion the students are walking on their own across open moorland, check pointed periodically throughout the day.

Heathfield Community school has a long standing relationship with the event and has fielded many brilliant teams over the years. Let's hope in 2022 we can get back to business
