Cadets and Staff from 2425 (Nottingham Airport) & 2229 (Loughborough) Air cadets travelled over to Belgium in August for the Ijzer march. This event is European wide, where all European countries unite and March together.
The march is no walk in the park! It takes time and countless training to be fit enough to encounter the challenge, but with the determination and team training we all got there in the end! Ijzer consists of four days marching around Belgium, walking over 32km per day for the full march and 16km per day for the mini march.
This year’s event was especially special as it was the 35th Anniversary of the March, where all marchers received a special commemorative medal marking this occasion.
