Dartmoor Challenge - ShelterBox Fundraising Event
13 September, 2014 (All day) - 14 September, 2014 (All day)
Region: South West

The Dartmoor Challenge is an epic trek across the dramatic backdrop of Dartmoor National Park where teams of four must carry a loaded ShelterBox up to 30 miles over mixed terrain. The challenge is both a spectacle and a test of endurance. Echoing the charity's role - taking shelter and hope to families trapped in remote and hostile environments - this cross-country hike offers everyone who takes part a feeling of real personal achievement, and a chance to support one of the UK's most distinctive national charities. Teams compete for points over a variable course where navigation, tactical decision making and team work will count as much as speed and endurance. For any teams courageous enough to push themselves harder for longer, there is the 'Elite' level - a course of around 45 miles across the two days, offering an even tougher challenge. The event will take place over the weekend of 13 and 14 September with registration commencing at 5pm on Friday 12. A prize giving and barbeque will round off proceedings at around 3pm on Sunday. The event will be based at CHICKS Moorland Retreat, Brentor
