As a part of their Fitness Challenge the Cubs spent two evenings at the playing field trying out some athletics. Every Cub took part in the following events: 50m sprint, 50m skip, long jump, sargent jump, cricket ball throw, shuttle run and 1km run. 

Every single one of the 36 Cubs who took part in the 1km run completed it in under 10 minutes and Dominic completed it in a very impressive 4 minutes 36 seconds (and he didn't even seem very worn out at the end). They were each awarded with an athletics medal to recognise their achievements. In addition, 13 Cubs gained the Athlete badge and two (Indie and Dominic) gained the Athlete Plus badge. Well done everyone!
