REQUIREMENTS FOR THE WALK

Suggested Equipment
Suitable equipment for a day on the open moor in September, bearing in mind what conditions are likely during that part of the year. You should have at least a map, compass, torch, food and fluids, whistle, waterproofs and a hat, gloves and suitable footwear. For greater safety take a first aid kit, survival bag/kisu and spare clothing. Be prepared for any-thing from warm sun to cold rain.

Skills
As some of the walk is on open Moor, at least one of the team must have basic navigation i.e. compass and map reading skills.

Timings
The walk will start at 0900 hours and no walkers will be allowed to start after 0915. The cut off time for the finish will be 17.00. There will also be a cut off time of 15.00 at Cramber Tor so that teams unlikely to finish in time can make their way to Norsworthy Bridge then along the road to the Quarry Car Park.

Preparation of Own Route
The route will start and finish at the Quarry Car Park. Walkers need to produce their own route card going to the ten tors listed above in the order shown, and must have their checkpoint sheet signed at the 7 checkpoints as well as the finish.

The Map used for the information and preparation of this walk is Ordnance Survey Outdoor Leisure Number 28, Map of Dartmoor North & South, 1:25,000.
