Welcome to RAF Mountaineering Association
Founded in 1948 and the oldest of the 3 British Service mountaineering bodies, the Royal Air Force Mountaineering Association (RAFMA) is responsible to the RAF Sports Board for the sport of mountaineering within the Royal Air Force. RAFMA provides members with a variety of outdoor opportunities – hill walking, rock climbing, ski mountaineering, indoor climbing and meets in the Alps and Greater Ranges. The latest meets itinerary can be found on the Meets Page.
Participation Statement: RAFMA recognizes that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.
RAF Climbing Competition - 29th May 2013
RAFMA will again be holding the annual RAF Climbing Competition on 29 May 13 at the Reading Climbing Centre. All RAF climbers are welcome, members or not – there will be prizes available across all standards of ability. There is a £10 entry fee which can be reclaimed from unit sports funds by serving personnel. Travel funding is available at unit discretion. This is set to be a fun day with a large number of climbers normally attending from across the service. The competition will identify the best male, female and veteran climbers as well awarding a prize for the best Station and RAF Student Unit Climbing Teams. Looking towards the 2020 bid for the inclusion of Climbing in the Olympics, the format remains as in previous years: FASTER – speed climbing; HIGHER – lead climbing; STRONGER – bouldering.
Full details and entry forms are available on the forum or from the RAF Climbing Team Manager – Flt Lt Alex Tomczynski email@example.com
