Last Sunday, on a chilly December morning, Air Cadets from 1015 (Horsham) Squadron took part in the Sussex Wing Cross-Country competition. As in previous years it was held at Crowborough Training Camp in East Sussex.

The Cadets took part in a grueling three mile course around the grounds of the training camp. This involved tackling steep ascends and descends in varying terrain.

The day ended with a Cadets wining several medals and a trophy for winning the Senior Girls category.

Seven members of the team have now been invited to represent Sussex at the Regional championships.

The Training Officer of 1015 (Horsham) Air Cadets, Flying Officer Richard Foster said: “It’s great to see young people pushing themselves to achieve something in sport and I’m looking forward to Horsham Air Cadets doing well in the next stage of the competition.”

Cross Country is one of many sports offered by Horsham Air Cadets, they also have the chance to do many activities including visits to RAF Stations, Adventure Training & the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
