Ten Tors 2019 - Two RLS Teams Complete Challenge

Added 3 years ago

Congratulations to all the students who took part in Ten Tors this year. We followed the progress of our two selected teams on the weekend of 11th/12th May when they left Okehampton to trudge across 35 miles of Dartmoor, climbing ten tors and carrying rucksacks of up to 20kg containing everything they needed to survive and camp wild to complete this challenge. Our 2 teams were sent on different routes and we are proud to say both crossed the finishing line before 12am on Sunday! They had a few blisters and aches and pains but nothing too serious. Well done to Aaron, Ben, Mack, Kate, Jason, Milo, James, Sophie, Evie, and Olivia!
Thank you to all the staff who train students for Ten Tors, particularly Mrs Wilcox, Mr Roodhouse & Rick — our Moorland Leaders, Mrs Datson - support bus and head chef, Mr Merrick and Miss Whitlock.
