CCF Team Take Part in Gruelling Challenge
From the 26-28th April, the Stamford Endowed Schools’ CCF Combat Cadet team, under the leadership of Chris Allison, were active in the STANTA training area near Thetford. This gruelling annual competition tests the tactical knowledge, navigation and fitness of cadets over three phases designed to stretch the teams to their limits.
None of the members of the team had any experience of the competition, yet through their physical endurance and commitment, they achieved 8th place out of 19 teams after strong performances in the night navigation, march and assault course. With further training for individual stands in the first phase, they look set to be favourites for 2014!
