Sunday 11th January 2015

This saw 218 participating in the first event of the year - inter-squadron cross country. The event took place at Thornes Park in Wakefield with the Squadron taking a good contingent of cadets that participated in all of the age categories.

The race is held annually and is organised by South and West Yorkshire Wing and saw cadets from across the whole of South and West Yorkshire come together to complete the 3 mile long course. 

16 Cadets and 2 Staff at Cross Country
The Squadron did very well overall as we came 2nd out of the 33 Squadrons in our Wing. We also brought home some medals with Cadet Flight Sergeant Eleanor Dovey coming first for the Senior Girls whilst Cadet Sergeant Bradley Norcliffe came 3rd for the Senior Men. The three cadets making up the Senior Men Team came first in this category and are pictured below receiving their trophy.
