Ten Tors Challenge

Autumn term in C

Pupils enrol after half term and then participate in training sessions on Tuesdays, 1.20pm–2.15pm

The challenge

Each year Bryanston enters two teams into the Ten Tors Challenge. We enter a team of six into the 35-mile challenge, for teenagers aged between 14 and 15 years old, and we enter a second team of six into the 45-mile challenge, for teenagers between 16 and 17 years old. This is a magnificent event that has been organised by the army for over 50 years. Each year there are 2,400 participants who walk 35, 45 or 55 miles across Dartmoor.

Selection process

We always have more than six pupils who are interested, which means we have to run a selection process. Selection means that it is possible that pupils could complete the training schedule and then not make the team; this is an unfortunate reality.


Please complete and submit the electronic consent form.


Costs are dependent on how far through the selection process your child goes, but will not be more than £200.

Training dates 2021-2022
