About 2,400 teenagers trekked unaided across Dartmoor over Saturday and Sunday in the annual expedition.

It is not a race, but the first team across the line was from Sidmouth College in Devon, at 08:30 on Sunday.

Participants are largely from the South West and visit 10 nominated peaks over the two days in teams of six.
