Cross Country Champions

On a sunny but freezing Sunday morning the Sqn competed in the annual London Wing Cross Championships, held at Chingford Plain. The Sqn provided 22 cadets to act as route markers and 4 staff to organise the event. Inspite of a strong challenge by 45F Sqn, at the end of the event the Sqn won the Junior Girls, Senor Girls, Overall Girls, Junior Boys, and Overall Boys, (and a 2nd in the Senior Boys) and the Overall Championship for the 12th consecutive year in London Wing (and before that for 7 consecutive years in West Essex Wing), another satisfying result for the Sqn. The photos show the the running team, the full Sqn party and race near the finish with Cpl Tom Bean aka Usain Bolt! Several cadets will now be representing the Wing in the Region Championships with Cdt Richards first in the Junior Boys, with Cpl Bean second, Cpl Muscas second and Cdt James fourth in the Junior Girls, Cpl Richards first in the Senior Girls, Cpl Serwaki fourth in the Intermedate Boys and Cpl Tenario fourth in the Senior Boys.
