Ten Tors Record Breakers
Congratulations to our Ten Tors teams for not only achieving the 35 mile cross country challenge but breaking a school record in the process! The Year 10 students made the event in 17 hours - the best time in 24 years! Two teams from Gordon's joined over two thousand students for the Army's 60th Ten Tors event over two days. Their participation was the culmination of months of early morning training to ensure they were at the peak of fitness. Misty conditions made their orienteering skills even more important as they set off carrying all they needed to complete their route and stay out overnight safely. Both teams reached checkpoint 7 on the Saturday evening meaning they had just three tors to conquer before the finish the next day. First over the finish line was Gordon’s A Team at 11.24am with the B Team hot on their heels at 11.36am.
