What a morning! Where do we start with this .......

We got to Meldon resovoir at 7am and without beating around the bush, the weather was horrific, we almost called it off but we decided to go for it with a different route than we'd planned. From the Meldon Dam we pushed on through 50 - 70 MPH winds, next to zero visibility, relentless horizontal rain and intermittent GPS signal around a ruthless 10.5 mile route peaking at the top of High Willhays Torr, the highest point in the south of England where the wind and rain was no less than savage, it was gopping up there 🤮 we then dropped back down to the Meldon resovoir and got back to the car park before anyone went down with wet / cold injuries, and some weren't far off it.... Dartmoor takes no prisoners, especially on days like today but we did warn you this hike would test you and we sincerely hope you guys can see why we went through the effort of providing a minimum kit list, even those of us who stuck to the kit list still ended up soaked through, however, everyone made it around the gruelling route and every one of you should be mega proud of what we achieved today, a monumental effort by all, you've definitely all earned a beer or 10 tonight

We'd like to send a massive shout out to Karl and the team at CrossFit All Or Nothing for sponsoring today's hike and offering a massive 20% discount on CrossFit membership to all who attended, we look forward to seeing you on the gym and working closely with you on a more regular basis! It was awesome to have Karl on the hike today too, thank you mate!

On a personal note we'd like to send big ones out to our ex Army mates for making the effort to come along, it was great to see you boys again after so long, we'll have to meet up when the weather's better and have a few beers! We hope you lads had a safe trip home!

Please give the guys over at CrossFit All Or Nothing a follow!
