Cross country

There is nothing quite like cross country running. Each run is different - even if you know the course the weather can quickly make things more challenging. You have to use real skill to navigate different terrains (that aren't always ideal for running) to stay ahead of the pack.

Lace up!

This is normally the very last sport you'll do in the year and cadets run at these levels:

  • Junior girls
  • Senior girls
  • Junior boys
  • Youth boys
  • Senior boys

The courses are normally between a mile-and-a-half to three miles long, and you can compete at all levels, right up to representing the Air Cadets at inter-cadet competitions...if you can stay the distance!
