No Retreat-No Surrender

Ten Tors Training 2022


Ten Tors is scheduled to be back with a vengeance for 2022, and our training starts soon. For those that are new to the Dartmoor Plodders, Welcome, for those returning, Welcome Back..


All of our main training walks are listed on the 'dates' page. 

If you use google calendar, feel free to let Huck have your email.


In addition to the main training walks, this year we hope to introduce a few evening classes. This will add to the value of your Ten Tors experience, and help us get as much information to you as possible. Some of these sessions will be open to parents too! 


The next step is to attend the Taster Walks. Each Taster walk will aim to introduce new skills and areas of focus. The Taster Walks form part of our Training program, and as we say a lot - attendance is key. 


At the start of the Taster Walk, we will be doing an information brief, along with questions for new folk.

So here we are, preparing for the first Taster Walk of the 2022 training season. The first Taster walk will be a general overview of some skills and experiences you will learn throughout training. 


Before we get out onto the Moor, there will be an informational briefing, where we will answer all of your questions. It is intended that Parents will stay for this briefing, and there will be ample opportunity for questions.


After the briefing, youngsters will head out on a days adventuring, and parents will be released until pickup at the end of the day.


The cost of £20 will be deducted from the Membership cost if you proceed.

Supporters shirts are 'Plodders Size'. They fit most(not me though...).
