Let the Ten Tors begin

Posted by on Dec 5, 2012 in News | No Comments

A group of Year Ten saltash.net students have recently commenced training for next year’s Ten Tors 35 mile challenge.

Whilst the training so far has been classroom based the group managed to get out on to Craddock Moor (Minions) in November to do some practical training.

The weather was in their favour – the sun shone gloriously, allowing them to achieve a great deal of Map and Compass work.

Students were also able to practise using the Emergency shelter, and just as importantly, ‘brew up’ on the Trangia cooking stoves.

Graham Drewery, Ten Tors Manger said, “The Team are now looking forward to getting out on Dartmoor from February 2013, where each time out, the back packs get bigger and the distances get longer!”
