7 RHA Colchester - Question re training areas

Discussion in 'Gunners' started by messym, Nov 15, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone recommend a decent nasty bastard hill for bergan work/reps in the Colchester area? I'm not sure what reception I'd get if I pitched up at the gates of Kirkee and asked advice..?
     
  2. Sorry if its a wahhhhhhh but join the hordes on the one and only Frog Hill on STANTA, Enjoy!
     
  3. The Colchester area isn't blessed with big hills.

    The river valley near hadleigh has a few small ones and there is plenty of scope for runnign throiugh sticky mud if that turns you on. Try Mersea Island. Not much of a hill, but I recall the embankment around the island might provide some opportunities to run up and down -up and down twice in 100m?

    You might need to contact the local cross country officer or even the orienteering chaps to find unpleasant surprises in a small area.

  5. Colchester compared with Aldershot is a poor second cousin I'm afraid - I got so desperate at one point that I spent evenings doing reps on the hill in the town centre that the Army Careers Office is on! Train down to Brecon has to be the only way!!
