Ten Tors !

Well, what a weekend it was for the Ten Tors teams but unfortunately it was far too hot.

Our four 35 teams made it across the finish line, with only one fallout.

Our 45 mile team were picked up at an incredibly busy Postbridge medical centre at midnight Saturday night, where medical teams were stretched coping with the number of participants who were suffering from heat exhaustion.

Our 55 mile team made it to Nodden Gate (within touching distance of the finish, having already walked at least 48 miles but were told they couldn't continue as they wouldn't meet the cut off. Unfortunately they had been held back for 1 and a half hours that day, whilst a teammate was airlifted off, or they might well have crossed the finish line.

All teams did tremendously well, under the incredibly difficult conditions and all definitely deserve a medal !!
