On Friday, 20th March 2015, having previously won the inter-squadron event and the inter-wing event, Cadet Corporal Craig Sherrington traveled to RAFC Cranwell to take part in a cross-country race against the best runners in the corps, from all six regions!
From the North Region, which is made up of South & West Yorkshire, Central & East Yorkshire, Durham & Northumberland and Greater Manchester, around 30 runners competed, with 5 in Sherrington's group.
The run, a three-and-a-half mile circuit, saw Sherrington, who doesn't run for a club, finish a brilliant 10th place, behind 6 club runners! This finish meant Sherrington finished the highest from the North Region in his category, ahead of the other four North Region runners.
Overall, it was a great event for the 471 Corporal, who will hopefully receive his North Region "blue" (a badge for representing the region) in the near future! Well done!
