Godolphin girls tackle Ten Tours

First published in News by

A TEAM of intrepid girls from Salisbury’s Godolphin School navigated their way around a 35-mile route over the wilds of Dartmoor in driving rain and howling winds to complete the Ten Tours Challenge.

The team of Catherine Cockrell (captain), Anna van der Horst, Imogen Heitz Jackson, Ella Melhorn and Bella Beney crossed the line with two hours to spare on Sunday afternoon, coming in sixth of 16 teams on their route.

A spokesman for the school said: “The Godolphin girls showed great resilience and determination to complete the challenge and are very justifiably proud of their achievement.”

Godolphin is one of only a handful of girls’ schools to have a Combined Cadet Force (CCF).

Although there are many challenge walks in Britain today, Ten Tors is still alone in catering solely for young people. Usually taking place in the second weekend of May, many of its participants will remember the event with pride for the remainder of their lives, and for some it may even be a life-changing experience.

The Ten Tors Challenge is organised by the Army, specifically 43 (Wessex) Brigade, from its Moor Group Headquarters at Okehampton Camp.  It is assisted by the Royal Navy (with manpower and helicopters), the Royal Air Force and the Dartmoor Rescue Group: between them they oversee the participants and ensure that none comes to lasting harm.
