The race started, and Corporal Pym took a quick lead over the first 200m to the first corner, before he was overtaken by Corporal Sherrington, and, along with three other cadets (including Cadet Gillions, formed the first clear leaders. Corporal Greenwood suffered with a bad back, and fell behind. After a lap of the lower field, Corporal Sherrington & Cadet Gillions were still in the lead group, with Corporal Pym around 10th position with Corporal Greenwood just behind, with Cadet Bowden in the main group, and in the females, Cadets Little & Sherrington were in the middle of the main groups.
After a tough second lap, including a steep hill, Corporal Sherrington (with a time of 14:20) finished first, with Cadet Gillions just behind in third. Corporal Pym finished around 4 minutes after Corporal Sherrington, and Corporal Greenwood battled on after his back injury, and finished a little over two minutes later. In the D category race, Cadet Sherrington finished little time after Corporal Greenwood, but unfortunately didn’t place. Cadets Bowden (A Category) & Little (D Category) finished a few minutes later.
Well done to all the cadets involved! We will find out soon if either category has done well and placed in the squadron competition, and huge congratulations to Corporal Sherrington and Cadet Gillions, who have been selected to represent the Wing in the Inter-Wing team!
