Imagine you are one of the competitors in the Ten Tors Challenge. Describe your clothes and the things you will take with you on the Challenge.
(Can we use both the present continous and the future when described the clothes,: I will wear/ I will have to take ...) I gave two examples.

1) I'm a competitor in the challenge. I'm wearing a red wind breaker over a yellow T-shirt, a pair of black tracksuit pants with a white stripe on each side and black hiking boots.
I'm carrying a big backpack, in which I put food and water for two days, a tent, a compass, extra clothes, maps. and a mobile phone. I'm also wearing a black bandanna on my forehead and I'm holding walking sticks.
2) I'll be a competitor in the ...
I'll wear a T-shirt with the competition's sponsors on it.
3) I will also wear a blue, long-sleeved, zip-up, woollen sweatshirt on it (over it)and peaked baseball cap or a bandanna. I still have to decide. I'll take with me (?) a big bag, a sleeping bag for the night and a lot of food and bottle of water.
4) There are many people.
There is a lof ot people OR there are a lot of people?
5) If I ever join the Ten Tors Challenge, I will wear a pair of Khaki bottoms, a T-shirt, and a shirt over it.
I will have to take food and water for two days and, of course, a compass.

    (Can we use both the present continous and the future when described the clothes,: I will wear/ I will have to take ...) I gave two examples.
    If you’re asking if the present continuous tense and the future tense are interchangeable, I’d say no, they aren’t. Future and future continuous probably are closer, but sometimes the continuous tenses sound clumsy.


    1) I'm a competitor in the challenge. I'm wearing a red wind breaker over a yellow T-shirt, a pair of black tracksuit pants with a white stripe on each side, and black hiking boots. Present continuous means that you are wearing these clothes right now!

    I'm carrying a big backpack into which I put food and water for two days, a tent, a compass, extra clothes, maps, and a mobile phone. I'm also wearing a black bandanna on my forehead, and I'm holding walking sticks. Present continuous means that you are wearing and doing these things right now!

    2) OK

    3) I will also wear a blue, long-sleeved, zip-up, woolen sweatshirt over it and a peaked baseball cap or a bandanna. I still have to decide. I'll take a big bag, a sleeping bag for the night, a lot of food, and bottle of water.

    4) There are many people.
    Grammatically, it should be “there is a lot…” because “lot” is singular. You’d be better off just forgetting “a lot of” (whether spelled correctly or not!) and just use “there are many of … “ instead.

    5) If I ever join the Ten Tors Challenge, I will wear a pair of Khaki pants, a T-shirt, and a shirt over it. I will have to take food and water for two days and, of course, a compass.

    Compare carefully so you catch all the big and little changes I made!
