The run was organised by Detective Chief Inspector Tony Moore to mark the closing of Hendon Police Cadet School which opened in 1954. There were over 370 people in attendance, including runners and their family and friends.
Ex-cadet instructor, Bob Day, held a training session prior to the run which included a kit inspection and a penalty for those whose kit was not up to scratch.
The event welcomed the support of the current Volunteer Police Cadets (VPC) who provided presence at marshalling points, event registration and the finish line. All of the competitors received a medal from the Volunteer Cadets on completing the run.
Speaking at the event, AC Patricia Gallan said:
“It's a privilege to be invited here as an honorary cadet for the day and share it with cadets past and present. I saw so many faces from around the organisation that I never knew were cadets. I really enjoyed the run and the warm up with PTI Bob Day was hilarious! It was great to meet Paul Elliot CBE too and The Passion Project Charity is a very worthy cause.”
