    Any info on the route...heard it is a total nightmare? :?

    How does it compare to the Lichfield 2.4km run route?

    Many Thanks!

    Lichfield is just two circuits over flat terrain...slighly hilly in places but nothing to worry about! head down and give it all you have! Good luck!

    ...and it's 2.4kms long.
     
  7. my first RMT in week 1 or 2 i got about 60 odd situps and 10:20 run time

    all of the lads though were about 30 secs slower than they were at lichfield because of the weather and the route is slightly harder

    done my final bpfa though the other week and got 9min and 70 something sit ups

    6 days now til pass out :)
     
  8. It's all cross-country. The first 50 metres are through a bramble patch (you may find gaiters a help here), then there's the sinking sand (best to sprint here), followed by approx. 75 metres of bamboo thicket (take a machete), then there's an almost vertical cliff face to scale (you may find a rope and pitons to be of help here), after that it's all pretty much plain sailing, apart from the minefield at the end.

    Survivors have been known to get times under 45 minutes.

    Best of luck.

    I think you start at the green hut by the tank curcuit,
    across downholme DZ,
    down thorpe edge,
    across the river swale
    then up the hill to finish at cordileras troop shelter

    sounds good to me
