This years event was held on the hottest weekend of the year. Through the blistering heat our team battled round the 35mile route carrying full kit. The two day event is a real challenge and not for the inexperienced as the distance and terrain is similar to Ten Tors. Again our team was one of the youngest involved but apart from some serious cases of ‘chaffing’ only one member had to retire due to a sprained ankle. Showing true team spirit our members crossed the finish line together early Sunday afternoon. Two of the youngsters who completed both this event and Ten Tors said that in fact the South Moors Rivers was indeed the toughest due to the unfamiliar terrain and weather conditions, so a huge CONGRATULATIONS to all those who represented their college.

The PERAMBULATION is considered to be one of the toughest day walks on Exmoor. The full walk covers 31 miles of the most challenging terrain and is an event that only the serious attempt. Traditionally those who have completed this walk are our older members with several years experience, but this time our team was from year 9 and 10. However all completed the distance even having stopped half way to partake of the BBQ. It was a great day and gave the college a chance yet again to show just how brilliant we are when the going gets tough!!
