The Challenge

A Short History

The following is an extract from a book called the Green Flag written by Lieutenant Colonel Lionel Gregory who commanded the Junior Leaders Regiment, Royal Signals at Denbury Camp back in the late 1950s.

He is credited, together with Major Parker and Captain Joyner, as the founder of the Ten Tors Challenge which in those days was a 55 mile hike through ten tor-located check points for teams of ten youngsters aged 15 to 18.

The following year, 1961, the event was opened to the public and since then the Challenge has developed into what it has become today.
