Dartmoor Plodders

No Retreat-No Surrender


As you have likely heard by now, the 2021 Ten Tors event has been cancelled. This is sad news indeed, but it just means that the 2022 event will be bigger and better than ever, although I guess you will be still walking the same distance.... but still.

" It is with regret that I have to announce it is no longer possible to hold a physical Ten Tors event on Dartmoor this May. As you know, we have been working closely with the local authorities and Ten Tors Policy Committee to plan a safe and enjoyable event but the restrictions that will still be in place over that period mean this is no longer possible. I know this will be a huge disappointment to many however, given that safety is always our number one priority, I hope you understand. We are planning to enable a virtual event which teams may wish to conduct closer to home during 2021 to keep the Ten Tors ‘flame alive’ and if so, please look out for more details to follow shortly. I can also confirm plans are already well underway to run a full Ten Tors event in May 2022 and look forward to seeing you all then. In the meantime, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your forbearance and to hope you and your families stay safe and well."

The army hope to possibly offer promotional live streams to interested parties. Please let me know if you are interested.

This means that regrettably there will be no training this year. 
That being said, should there be interest, we do hope to put on a 'fun' Plodders catch up event over the summer. 

Stay safe folks, NRNS.


It is with great regret that as a result of official guidance, and due diligence, I have taken the decision to cancel all walks and Plodder events for the foreseeable future.

With the developing pandemic, it would be irresponsible to continue hosting gatherings of many people, from many walks of life.

In addition to this I live with a nurse, so personally have a somewhat increased chance of exposure, thus a greater chance of passing it on. It would be unfair on other volunteer leaders to be left running the show without me, 

A) It’s not what they signed up for. 

B) They won’t get the benefit of my whitty Remarks aNd woeful Punns. I mean Wonderful.

Whilst Ten Tors has not officially been cancelled as yet, I feel it is only a matter of time.

I am well aware that amongst our esteemed ranks we have many very committed and enthusiastic young people, who will be very keen to keep their time out on the moor, and who as a result may wish to continue having walks on the moors. Whilst this is a truly wonderful thing, I would strongly advise great caution, and encourage, nee insist, that all safety and responsible precautions are taken.

If you have any queries or concerns, please don't hesitate to get in touch.



I am pleased to announce that we have in production some more Supporters T-Shirts. A shirt any Dartmoor Plodder supporter can buy, and feel just as proud as the youngsters whom where their very own Dartmoor Plodders shirts. You can join the party even moor now! 

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

They can be purchased at £20 each.
