This year we are proud to be supporting Marine Troop 901 TS Fearless as our event charity. If you took part in the 2016 East Coast Triathlon on the Saturday Evening you will have been cheered around the run route by some of the wonderfully enthusiastic cadets from 901. The cadets from 901 also provided great assistance with marshalling our XC Half-Marathon at Fritton lake in 2016.
A registered charity, this independent Marine Cadet Unit was formed in September 2001, hence it’s title 901 Troop and is based at Winterton-On-Sea. The Troop is open to boys and girls aged 11 to 18 years who meet regularly and take part in many diverse activities such as adventure training, first aid and map reading. Troop 901 aims to provide the opportunity for young people to develop into responsible, dependable and useful members of society.
You will see these smart and enthusiastic cadets once again manning the water station and run route at East Coast 2017 so please join us in thanking them for giving up their time to volunteer. You will be able to find out more about Troop 901 at the event. They are always happy to take on new cadets and as a registered charity will be very thankful for any donations received on the day.
