Cadet K-Run

Present and past cadets of the Metropolitan Police Cadet Corps held a ‘fun run’ of approximately 4.5 miles in and around the streets of Hendon, North London on Saturday 27th June 2015. Dubbed the ‘K-run’, it was a run that all the cadets would have had to complete during their training.


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.”

We want to say a big “Thank you” to everyone who participated in this event and for all your support for the Milestone Foundation and the Passion Project.
