The RLC places a huge importance on sport. With 27 sports supported, we have one for you.

“I place a huge premium on sport in the Army. It helps our Army win in battle and plays a vital role in welfare, morale, operational effectiveness and recovery.

Sport produces soldiers who build and lead teams by habit and reflex. It generates and maintains cohesion. It nurtures pride and that essential corollary – humility. It encourages leaders to think clearly, confidently and positively when under pressure.

And fundamentally it feeds a winning culture and ethos that
inspire hunger for success on the battlefield.”
CGS, Army Sports Awards 2014

On Wednesday 14 October, The RLC Individual and Team Orienteering Championships took place on Mytchett Training Area. 115 competitors from 27 units took on a score event in which individuals had one hour to reach as many of the 24 checkpoints as possible. The four team members who score the highest points count towards the team result, where teams tie on points, the team with the fastest time to score those points wins.

Congratulations to all who were involved and well done to 17 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC, Marchwood who were the champion male team, 162 Regiment RLC who were the champion female team and Army Drivers Northern Ireland (152 Regiment RLC) the champion Reserve team.
