National Tribe Wild Tribe teams conquer 10 Tors

WT 45 finishNational Trust Wild Tribe 45 mile team approach the finish

Pete Davies, our Area Ranger in the Plym Valley and myself (Adrian Colston, General Manager for Dartmoor) have just got back from the annual 10 Tors expedition on Dartmoor. The National Trust had three teams entered and we worked closely again all year with Torquay Boys Grammar School who also had three team entered.

The weather over the weekend was truly awful – very windy and dozens of really lumpy showers. Despite this we managed to get all six of our teams (six young people in each) around intact. A brilliant achievement – well done to all the participants and a bit thanks to all our trainers and helpers. Here are a few photos from the weekend along with a link to our 10 Tors photo gallery.

Wild Tribe 55 medals

As they had to run the last 1 mile of their 55 miles – I think they deserve another photo! Collecting their well earned medals.
