Cross Country Champions

On a chilly and overcast Sunday morning the Sqn competed in the annual London Wing Cross Championships, this year held at Debden House due to the normal venue at Chingford being unavailable. The Sqn provided 25 cadets to act as route markers and 6 staff to organise the event and provide transport to Squadrons arriving by Tube at Debden Station. After a close fourt battle with other Units the Sqn won the Junior Girls, Junior Boys, Overall Girls and Overall Boys, and the Overall Championship for the 10th consecutive year in London Wing (and before that for 6 consecutive years in West Essex Wing), a satisfying result for the Sqn. The photos show the Junior Boys starting, Cdt Gupta comming 4th in the Junior Girls competition and the Team and some of the marker party at the end of the day. Several cadets will now be representing the Wing in the Region Championships.
