Ten Tors team

The first ever Ralph Allen Ten Tors Team successfully completed the challenge last weekend. Max Workman lead the team with Ross Jacob as assistant leader. They set off for Dartmoor on Friday 8 May looking forward to putting all their training to good use. Having only just survived the kit scrutineering process the team made camp at Okehampton Army base and planned out their route for the weekend.

The challenge day began with a 5am wake up call,   400 teams made their way to the start to be greeted by an impressive military display of helicopters and bugle playing and cannons being fired.
 
RAS team got off to a flying start leading all the teams by midday, but slowed the pace by the afternoon due to team blisters. After a windy and cold night camping on the moor the team set out at 6am the
following morning. A tired but triumphant team emerged over the hillside and headed for the finish completing the challenge in a very respectable time.
 
An amazing effort by all team members which I am sure they will remember for the rest of their lives. A huge well done to Finn Ross, Ollie Weedon, Jack White, Alex Hopkins Nettle, Max Workman and Ross Jacob -  an incredible achievement!
 
Thanks also to staff Ms Jane Fox, Miss Helen Tallett, Mr Dave Camm; and Mrs Mandy Workman, parent and governor.
