On Sunday 30th September 2012, 25 Cadets, Staff and Committee Members from 2418 Squadron (Nottingham’s No.1) went to the Nottingham half Marathon. We unwrapped thousands of medals to award them to runners and joggers that had successfully completed the half marathon.

The race started at Trent Bridge and finished Victoria embankment. There was a half marathon which was approximately 13miles and a mini marathon that was 1.5miles. 2418 Squadron was at the finish line to congratulate and reward the victorious runners.

Overall it was a great day for the runners and for the cadets! Although there was some light rain everyone kept in good spirits and persevered until the last runner crossed the line.

Our sincere congratulations to Cpl Jamie Knighton who completed the half marathon in 1hr 45minutes and Sgt Daniel Grant who did it in 2hours 14minutes – Well Done!!
