Ten Tors 2019 was another successful year for Tiverton High School. Our 3 teams started – and 3 teams finished. Two at the 35 mile distance and one at the 45 mile. And even Bramble managed to get in on the action!
Students have been training hard since October last year and have endured some of the worst weather that Dartmoor could throw at them with strong winds, rain, hail and very low temperatures. Luckily the event this year was blessed with ideal walking conditions, blue sky and sunshine ; something the students hadn’t experienced much of during their training.
“All three teams did exceptionally well,” said Leo Biles, Outdoor Education Practitioner, Tiverton High School. “And talking to the teams after they finished it was very clear that their success was down to team work and the support of teammates throughout the various challenges the event puts the young people through.
“The students should be proud of what they achieved throughout training and the challenge itself. Ten Tors isn’t easy, it isn’t for everyone, but for those that do take part they take on one of the biggest challenges young people can do in the south west.
“It’s a lifelong memory of friendship blood sweat and tears. Well done to everyone who took part in the training and challenge and special thanks to all the volunteers who give up their time to help facilitate Tiverton High School’s teams throughout the challenge.”
