I’m not sure if this is correctly how I post something so you’ll have to excuse me if it’s wrong. I am 16 years old and quite a tall and broad shouldered lad. I have been training hard and pushing myself to work on my running, so much so I have started to enjoy it, and go out running everyday. Yet I still struggle to shift my 1.5 mile time. When I first started I got a miserable 15 minutes. But now 6 months on and three stone lighter I’ve got it down to a consistent ten minutes and thirty seconds. I understand that I should continue to push myself (which I will) but my assessment centre is coming up at the end of this month and I’m worried that if I run a 10:30 that I will not be accepted to the Paras. I am completely fine with everything else as the assessment as I am naturally quite strong and have done quite a bit of heavy lifting work so this would not be a problem. So my question is has anyone gotten in as a junior para with a 10:20-10:30 1.5 mike run time? Also thank you for taking the time to read and answer my question.

If the time is still 10 minutes for Harrogate, then that is the standard. There is no room for negotiation.
