A group of Year Ten saltash.net students have recently commenced training for next year's Ten Tors 35 mile challenge. Whilst most of the training so far has been classroom based, the group has managed to get out on to Craddock Moor (Minions) in to do some practical training.

The weather was in their favour during their trip allowing them to test out their map and compass skills.

The students also got to practise using the emergency shelter, and just as importantly, 'brew up' on the Trangia cooking stoves.

Ten Tors Manger Graham Drewery said, "The Team are now looking forward to getting out on Dartmoor from February 2013, where each time out, the back packs get bigger and the distances get longer!"
