'A light blue day': RAF runners win big at the Inter Services

The Air Force took all the individual titles and three of the four team championships at RAF Halton.

It was a day of domination for the RAF as they blew their military rivals away at the 2022 Inter Services Cross Country Championships.

The Air Force won all four individual titles and three of the four team titles on their home course at RAF Halton.

The Royal Navy's U23s' team title was the only prize missing from the RAF's haul who won the women's title for the first time since 1988.

The women's race, run over 6km, was won comfortably by Chloe Richardson while the U23s race saw victory for the Tom Thayre.

The master's race title was Paul Vernon's to celebrate while Mike Kallenberg was victorious in the men's race.

This was a return for Inter Services cross country after a two-year enforced absence due to COVID-19.
