Just out of interest is anyone going to Dartmoor this weekend for 10 Tors? If you are, are you in a team, a trainer or a parent? I for one am going down. I'm doing the 55 mile walk this year (gulp)! The first time you do it you say you will never do it again, yet somehow you always come back again!
For those of you who don't know '10 Tors' is a 2 day hike across Dartmoor carrying all of your kit/provisions. Starting at 7am teams have until 5pm the next day to get back to Okehampton after passing through 10 designated Tors. Teams are made up of 6 people, mostly from schools, scout groups and youth organisations. There are 4 different events on '10 Tors'. Firstly there is the 'Jubilee chalenge' for the disabled (can't remember the distance). Then there is the 35 mile, 45 mile and finally the 55 mile challenge.

Might see some of you down there...
