Nottingham’s no.1 race ahead at cross country

After several nights of training for cross country in the cold and windy winter conditions, it finally culminated on Sunday 15th Feb. As the cadets hopped off the bus, and began their warm up, we all got hit with the serious tone of the competition ahead. The track was 3.5km for younger cadets and 5.0km for older cadets, and although it was difficult for them, the staff and substitute cadets encouraged them on.

However, after some dangerous close calls at the finish line, over all, our squadron managed to get 3rd out of 29 squadrons, which is great! We also got to keep our favorite saying ‘Nottingham’s Number One Squadron’!
