Flight Sergeant Wheatley of Crowle Air Cadets recently represented North Region in the National Air Cadets Cross Country championship. He had already represented his Squadron and his Wing in earlier competitions, but received a last minute call up to the Region team.
With only a few days notice he was asked to represent North Region in the Air Cadet Championship. The Championship sees the best runners from all 6 Regions in the Air Training Corps compete to determine the overall winner.
Having represented his Squadron and later his Wing, FS Wheatley thought he could relax and scaled back his training. However due to a last minute drop out he was asked to step up again and represent his Region. After the gruelling 3 mile run he was placed 18th in his classification, a fantastic achievement.
