Supporting the Lincoln 10K

The Lincoln 10K is one of the UK’s most popular road races, taking place around the historic City and 1237 (North Hykeham) Squadron RAF Air Cadets, were there to lend a hand.

The race attracted of 5000 runners from across the UK, who raised over £100,000.00 for various charities. The race see’s runners take to the roads around the historic parts of the city finishing outside Lincoln’s imposing cathedral. Now in its in 20th Year the race has gone from success to success, but none of it would be possible without an army of volunteers supporting the event.
Cadets and Staff from 1237 took to the cobbled streets in the Bailgate to greet the runners upon their successful completion of the race, which included Squadron Leader Rachel Waltz, one of Trent’s Wing Staff officers who completed the race in a very respectable 59 minutes, raising funds for the Royal British Legion. The cadets were tasked with handing out the all-important goody bags and T-shirts, not a small task with 5000 people passing through.
The weather for the race was a great, considering the morning before it was snowing, which led to the cancellation of the youth race. Flight Lieutenant Tom Keasley, Officer Commanding 1237 said ‘It was a great day supporting the race, I look forward to next year and the cadets will be too’.
