This year only 2 Counties from The ACF entered the Ten Tors Challenge.
2 teams of 6 cadets from Wiltshire Army Cadet Force entered this challenging event. After weeks of practice events to hone their map reading skills and endurance, they attempted their first ever Ten Tors Challenge on Saturday 7th May
All Teams had to be on the finish line by 1700hrs on Sunday to complete the arduous 35 miles across Dartmoor and the Ten Tors.
Team 'B' completed the route with 12 minutes to spare. Unfortunately, Team 'A' were agonisingly close to completing, arriving on the last Torr at 16.20. It was declared that they would not arrive at the finish line in time, so their challenge ended there.
Wiltshire Army Cadet Force Commandant Colonel Britt Haggerty was there to great Team 'B' at the finish line and present their medals.
All the cadets should be extremely proud of their efforts in this extremely challenging event.
As always thank you to the Adult Volunteers who help to make these events happen so our cadets can achieve so much.
