National Athletics Championships.

8 June 2019

This weekend two cadets from Sussex Army Cadet Force competed for the South East region at the National Athletics Championships.

Qualifying for the team and reaching the nationals is a amazing achievement and we have not had any cadets achieve this for over 5 years.

The South East team performed really well this year and many cadets came away with fantastic results, One of those being our very own Cadet Bates who won silver in the 300m of a highly competitive field. He also achieved Bronze in the 4x4 100m relay.

Cadet Brunton was in the 1500m race and again he was racing against lots of club runners. Cadet Brunton achieved a 4th place in this race picking up valuable points for the team.

Both cadets were awarded their National and Brigade Colours for their achievements.

Finally a massive Thank you to SI Cook and SI Huff for all their help at the weekend.
