Churston Boys Complete Ten Tors 35 Mile Challenge

Lucas Tompson and Seth Yardy both in year 10 successfully completed the Ten Tors 35 mile challenge in May. Both Lucas and Seth are part of a voluntary group called Dart Trekkers which train young people to take part in the annual Ten Tors.

The boys trained for this event regularly with long walks each time building up their distance. Lucas said “I felt tired but it was the most rewarding feeling ever.” Both Lucas and Seth would like to challenge themselves further by taking part in the 45 mile challenge in September. Seth said “There is a big emphasis on mind over matter”. Lucas and Seth really excelled during their trek and showed exceptional leadership skills. Good luck with your next challenge!
