Dartmoor trekkers complete Ten Tors Challenge
Old but still interesting :)
Thousands of teenagers have completed the "forbidding Dartmoor terrain" of the Ten Tors and Jubilee Challenges, bbc.co.uk reports.
The annual Army-organised events saw 2 400 14 to 19-year olds trek through the national Park in Devon. In teams of six, they made journeys of either 35, 35 or 55 miles, starting on Saturday (12 May).
Participants were chiefly from schools and colleges from surrounding counties, including Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset. The Jubilee Challenge was especially designed for youngsters with extra physical or educational requirements and 300 participants completed the 15 mile route.
