Ten Tors 2012
Pupils from Stover School are, once again, taking part in the Ten Tors Expedition, on Dartmoor. There are three levels of challenge which are over one of 26 specific routes; the bronze routes are 35 miles long for pupils aged 14 - 15 years. The silver routes are 45 miles long and open to 16 and 17 year olds. The gold routes are 55 miles long and open to 17 - 20 year olds.
The idea of the main challenge is for teams of youngsters to walk across Dartmoor on a set route which visits 'Ten Tors' and lasts over two days. The teams meet at the Okehampton Army Camp on the Friday where they prepare kit and camp overnight. On Saturday morning the teams set off at around 7.00am. The bronze participants must camp on a Tor whereas the silver and gold teams can camp anywhere on the moor. The next day the teams must have visited the furthest Tor on their route and return to the Okehampton camp by 17.00pm thus completing the expedition.
Teams at Stover start training for the event in the previous winter and continue up until the event start time.
