EX-CADET WEEKEND FUN RUN
Anyone for a run around Fort Henry?
Ex-Cadet weekend at the end of September will include a fun run around Fort Henry for Old Brigade members, other ex-cadets and present-day cadets. Everyone is invited to join a small group of members of the Class of 67 as they enter the Old Brigade not only with the traditional parade and dinner, but also with a 5-kilometre run around Fort Henry. This is a repeat of last year’s run, when members of the Class of 66 marked their entry into the Old Brigade with a run around Fort Henry.
In essence this is a re-creation of the Cadet Wing Harriers Race including members of all elements of the college student body, past and present. The plan is to start from the College Parade Square at 1500 hours on Saturday, September 29, and run completely around the Fort Henry Hill before returning to the parade square with smiles on our faces.
Ex-cadets of the other classes having reunions this year are particularly invited to join us for the run. If any of the classes wish to gather a group together from their year for the run, that would be even better. And, of course, present-day cadets are welcome too. The college’s Harriers teams – both male and female – have already agreed to participate.
If the younger groups want to make a bit of a race of it, they are welcome to do so, but the Old Brigade members will not be racing – the completion of the run will be reward enough. Afterwards, all participants will be invited to a nearby mess to quench their thirst and celebrate the comradeship that is such a part or the college experience.
Last year we had 35 runners, and this year we hope to have more. Anyone interested in participating in the run is requested to contact the organizer, 6891 Bill Aikman at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm arrangements.
