Arctic X Country at Ice Station Zebra! (Or Inter Wing X Country at RAF Cranwell)

3 Cadets from 1406 (Spalding) Squadron Air Training Corps, battled bitterly cold conditions at the Inter Wing X Country event held at RAF Cranwell on Sunday 10 March 2013. Cadets Emily Brand, Emily Ransome and Cadet Corporal Steven Barnett were selected to represent Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing. Not only did they have to do battle with the elements, sleet, snow and a biting wind, but also the best X country runners from across the Central and East Region from the remaining 5 Wings.

Cadets Emily Brand and Emily Ransome were both in the Junior Girls event. Not daunted by the conditions, the elements or the opposition, the young cadets who have been at the Squadron less than a year, called upon every last ounce of energy, courage and determination to help the Wing team come a creditable and well-earned 3rd place and Bronze medals for all.  To add to her medal haul, Emily Brand called upon the crowds support, and used every last piece of energy and effort to come in as 3rd individual, and another Bronze for those efforts, and automatic selection for the Regional team.

Emily Brand can now look forward to representing the Region at the Inter region event, again to be held at Cranwell, this time against the best X Country runners from the Air Cadet Organisation from across the UK.

Cadet Corporal Steven Barnett represented the Wing at Senior Boys event, in what is likely to be his last event before he leaves the Squadron to join the Royal Air Force this month. The Squadron wishes him well, and hope that he enjoys his Air Force Career as much as he has his Air Cadet Career.
