Dartmoor was ready to present wind and rain consistently early on and into the darkness on Saturday 3rd November when the Ten Tors teams took the moor in their stride. Another challenging day ahead, focusing on navigation and timings.
'We walked about thirteen miles on North Dartmoor as training for Ten Tors. The walk was very challenging in some parts because of the rain and fog which made it slippery and hard to see. However, it was still incredible. We had picturesque scenery, (when it wasn't raining) we saw loads of sheep, cows and horses walking around and I saw quite a few pretty flowers as well. It was also nice to get to know some more people and have fun!!' Josie McClenaghan
The teams had many positive moments e.g. working together as a unit, performing at a strong pace and looking after each other in challenging situations.
'The training walk last Saturday definitely tested some of our limits as the weather was not the most welcoming, but as a team we overcame it. Our compatibility as a team has definitely improved and we are more of a unite now than we were before. Although we were all a bit cold and tired by the end of the walk I am glad we got to experience the elements and am looking forward to our next training walk.' Jessica Siagian
The teams hit the final stretch of the moor by torchlight and pushed on finishing their day knowing they had successfully completed their route. Bring on W3!
