Templer Way

The 18 mile Templer Way Challenge

Sunday 26th April 2020

The Templer Way Challenge is our biggest annual fundraiser, and this year will be the 10th event!

This walk is 18 miles between Haytor on Dartmoor and Teignmouth on the south coast; the Way traces the route by which granite was exported from Dartmoor via the unique Haytor Granite Tramway and the Stover Canal.

This year we will also be offering the option of a shorter walk “The Mini Templer” for families and people who may not feel able to complete the full 18 miles, this walk will finish at Stover Park where the main walk breaks for lunch, about 9 miles.

Whilst we can’t promise good weather we can promise an interesting walk passing thorugh lots of different scenery following an historic route pretty much all down hill to the sea! Throughout you will be accompanied by members of Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton, who will keep everyone on track and provide help as required.

The walk finishes on the green at Shaldon, outside the London Inn. We will provide minibus transfers back to the start from here, and also from Stover Park for the Mini Templers.

We ask that all participants raise a minimum of £20 in sponsorship, but if you are able to raise more this will be much appreciated, the biggest fundraiser on the event will win the chance to be a casualty on one of our exercises and experience up close what we get up to (minimum age 18)

The minimum age for the full Templer Way Challange is 12 years old when accompanied by an adultThe minimum age for the Mini Templer is 8 years old. 

Well behaved dogs are welcome.
