Wing Cross Country Champions – for over a decade!

The Sqn competed in the Annual London Wing Cross Country Competition held at Epping Forest on Sunday 25 November.

In spite of comments on some other Sqns websites the 241 won the following:

Junior & Senior Girls
Intermediate & Senior Boys
Overall Girls, Overall Boys and Overall Winners!

but only came 3rd in the Junior Boys! Well done to 2324 Sqn and 344 Sqn for beating us, Still there is next year!

The Sqn has won the Overall Championships continuously in West Essex Wing and then London Wing since at least 1996, an unrivalled record (and now probably unbeatable) which we intend to extend!

Cdt Birbeck was 1st in Junior Girls and Cdt Channon 2nd
Cdt Henry was 2nd in Senior Girls and Cdt Dutch 3rd
Cdt Southcott was 1st in Intermediate Youths and Cdt Al Akku was 3rd
IFS O’Donovan was 2nd in Senior Boys and Cpl Fothergill 3rd

They will all have the chance to represent London Wing at the Region Competition.

The Squadron also provided 30 cadets and staff members to mark the course and supervise the event.

Many thanks are due to WO Morris for making the arrangements with the Orion Harriers Running Club and Epping Forest, the very smooth running of the day.

Also congratulations to Sgt Kirsty Troy for organising the teams and the markers.
