Wed 27 Jan 2021: A message from Colonel Neville Holmes MBE - Event Director
“The evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to review how we approach the 2021 Ten Tors Event. The safety of all those involved remains our principal concern so following consultation with Team Managers and the Ten Tors Policy Committee, we have decided that for this year only, Ten Tors will comprise a single day challenge.
Teams will be allocated a slot on one of 3 identical days covering either 25km, 30km or 35km distances. Due to increased risk of transmission, teams will not be able to camp before or after the Event, though start times will reflect the necessity to commute. Spectators are also not able to attend, but we are developing some exciting ways to keep in touch online as teams make their ways across the moor. The Jubilee Challenge will still take place on Saturday over the same distance though with reduced participation.
We are sincerely sorry to have to impose these changes, but hope you understand and agree this format gives us the best chance of getting as many participants onto the moor as possible. A detailed instruction and clarification of the new rules will follow shortly. Of course we are beholden to the pandemic, so sadly cannot rule out further changes but will keep you informed as soon as we know. I would like to thank you all for your forbearance and continued support and hope you and your families stay safe and well.”
