Members of Number 1 Welsh Wing Royal Air Force Air Cadets (RAFAC) have kicked off the summer sports calendar with their inter-squadron athletics competition at Cardiff’s Leckwith stadium.


Cadets from squadrons across South Wales took part in the annual fixture and competed against each other in a range of events, including: 1500m, hurdles, javelin, shotput and team relays.


Successful individuals and squadron teams will now go on to represent No 1 Welsh Wing RAFAC at the regional athletics competition. It will be held at RAF Cosford later this year and successful cadets will progress to represent Wales and West Region at Corps level.


The Army Cadet Force (ACF) National Athletics Championships will be held on Saturday 9 June 2018.


Army cadets from across Wales will head to Grantham in Lincolnshire to represent their county in a range of track and field sports. They will compete in Junior, Intermediate and Senior categories.


The occasion is a standout event in the cadet calendar. It will be hosted by HQ 7 Infantry Brigade & Headquarters East and supported by the Army Cadet Force Association.


Sports is one of the many activities available to young people involved in the Sea Cadet Corps, Army Cadet Force and RAF Air Cadet organisations in Wales. They are used as an opportunity for young people to new skills while they enjoy fun with friends.
