Ten Tors 2017 draws to a close.

Exmouth Community College students were amongst the Ten Tors young challengers to finish the mammoth trek across Dartmoor.

Ten Tors is an annual grueling trek organised by the Army across the unforgiving landscape of Dartmoor. The event sees 2400 teenagers from across the region team up in to 400 groups of six to take on the moors, walking distances of up to 55 miles in 2 days.

Thousands of youngsters have been spending the weekend hiking across the national park and have today started to make their way over the finish line.

Go to the Ten Tors 2017 Facebook page to see more from this weekend’s event.

Don’t forget to upload your pictures and videos to iwitness24 and we’ll put the best in to a web gallery.
