Cadets of 2490 (Spen Valley) Squadron, Air Training Corps showed their sporting prowess recently during an inter-squadron Cross Country Competition held at Thornes Park, Wakefield. Teams of cadets from squadron travelled across to participate in gruelling 3-mile course races against other squadrons from around South and West Yorkshire.

The boys’ team, made up of Cadets J Dolan, R Featherstone and J Webb (pictures l-r) did so well that combined they beat every other team to claim first place. They were awarded gold medals by the Wing Sports Officer Flt Lt Dominic McCarron, and were presented with the annual wooden plaque, which has been sent for engraving and will proudly display the squadron name this year at the Wing Headquarters.

Well done to the winning team, as well as all the other cadets of the wing who took part in the cross country competition.
