Mock Ten Tors

Mock Ten Tors

TCC students experienced some different weather during their last training walk before the Ten Tors Challenge.  The teams camped at Prewley on the Friday night, where the conditions were damp and misty.  The walk on the Saturday morning started near Okehampton camp, when conditions were ideal.  They completed a 12 hours walk finishing near Two Bridges, by which time it was raining. 

After a night’s sleep the teams set off in thick mist from Holming Beam and headed up the west side of Dartmoor to Shortacombe.  By the time they arrived at the finish the sun had returned to help start the recovery of their sore feet.

Well done to all those who took part in the Mock Ten Tors and good luck to those who have been selected to take part in this year’s challenge.
