Cadets impress cross-country
A CHALLENGE of endurance, motivation and strength was taken up with gusto by the 422 (Corby) Squadron Royal Air Force Air Cadets when they took part in the annual South and East Midlands Wing Cross Country event.
The event was held at Ratcliffe College in Leicestershire, where there was a new range of terrains for the cadets to tackle.
Cadet Lucy Kendall, running in her first cross country for the squadron, managed to place first in her category, setting the new course record. She said: “I’m really excited for the opportunity to represent the Wing at the regional competition. I can’t wait.” She joins other winners to compete in the regional competition.
Corby was placed sixth overall out of 29 squadrons – an improvement from last year’s position of seventh.
