Congratulations to Cadet Rogers from 209 (West Bridgford) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets who today took part in the Central & East Region Air Cadets Cross Country competition.

Katie was one of four Cadets in the Junior Women’s category that got selected to represent South and East Midlands Wing Air Cadets.

The race took part at RAF Cranwell and included the dreaded ‘Cardiac Hill’ along the route.

Katie and the rest of the Junior Women team celebrated with gold medals coming 1st against the five other Wings, taking home silverware.

Along with 1st place for Junior Women the Wing also walked away with two other 1st place trophies, a 2nd and a 5th place, resulting in South and East Midlands Wing winning the overall trophy.

Katie has also been selected to represent Central and East Region at the Corps Cross Country Championship later this month!

Cadet Rogers seemed thoroughly thrilled with the result after recovering from the 3 mile course! “Today has been a really good day! I came 4th overall, made some new friends and South and East Midlands came 1st over all! I was proud to be apart of the South and East Midlands Wing team!”

Well done Katie and Good Luck!
