Rotary Exmoor Youth Challenge


Note that the team with the lowest number of points wins. Time penalties are scored as minutes lost or gained, and 'Questions' is the number of correct questions answered (Maximum 16). Congratulations to ALL teams who completed the challenge - the conditions this year were good, but to walk against the clock for 16 miles in hilly moorland is not easy.


REMINDER: PLEASE LET US HAVE YOUR SPONSORSHIP MONEY AS SOON AS YOU CAN (cheques payable to Exmoor Rotary). It will all go to Children's Hospice South West.

Sponsorship from this event will go to:Children's Hospice South West

In 2024 some 118 Junior and 10 Senior teams took part from 55 different schools and organisations. Overall there were 503 children who started the Challenge. Of these 12 whole teams dropped out and a number of individuals from teams who continued.  So, in total, 54 competitors dropped (74 last year) out at various points along the route but 449 completed the course, tired but elated, and received their medals at the finish.
Massive congratulations to all of those 449 competitors who managed the whole course and were awarded their medals.

Remarkably some 16 teams achieved times over the 8 stages within 10 minutes of the scratch time: one team (96) – Sampford Peverell 3 did it in the exact time and team (46) - Willand Scouts 3 within 1 Minute

Again this year, we have had numerous comments from those based at Dulverton School those running checkpoints and acting as marshals, and members of the public walking on the moor - they all say how courteous, polite, cheerful, and well behaved all the young people were who took part. It made running the event a real pleasure. Thank you.
