Thousands of teenagers taking part in the annual Ten Tors Challenge on Dartmoor have been congratulated on their success in completing the course.
All 400 teams managed to cross the line by 17:30 BST on Sunday (May 15th), with 2,400 youngsters having marched across the high ground of the national park in their waterproofs
and walking boots
while carrying their tents
and other camping equipment
Organisers said participants had put in some "stunning, unbelievable efforts," adding: "They are incredible - every single one of the 2,400 individuals who made up the Teams deserve their place in history!"
Depending on their ability or age group, challengers had been trekking for 35, 45 or 55 miles.
The success of this year contrasted with some previous occasions such as 1996, when severe weather curtailed the challenge for many.
Sleet and snow caused such havoc that all but 300 of the competitors had to be airlifted off the moors by helicopter.
