We are very proud to hear that a number of our students took place in this weekend’s Ten Tors Challenge.
The Ten Tors Challenge is limited to 2,400 individuals (four hundred teams of six teenagers). The teams, depending on age, face hikes of 35, 45 or 55 miles (56, 72 or 88km) over the rough terrain of Dartmoor, visiting ten nominated tors in under two days.
The teams must be self-sufficient, carrying all that they need to complete their route and stay out over night safely. The weather can be very changeable, and success or failure can depend very much on the extent to which a team has been trained for all eventualities.
Congratulations go to Archie Bradshaw and Jayella Potts who completed the 35 mile challenge and to Emily Mackenzie who completed the 45 miles challenge!
