CFT distance

#1
Can a qualified PTI help please?
What is the CFT distance requirement for corps personnel in the TA? I have a minor dilema with my recruits but neither of the PTIs can give me the def answer- is it 4 or 6 miles? The PTI's will get an answer but I need to know asap. Thanks in advance.

Here here to that.
On the CFT side of things.. I think its going up to 8 miles next year. Anyone want to comment?

Currently for TA it is 6 miles unless you are going on a deployment then it is the 8 miler.
Weight:
Infantry 25kg
RAC 20kg
Others 15kg
This is inclusive of weapon & helmet. Water is not included.
It is proposed that it increases to 8 miles next year.

How are you TA guys gonna cope with the full 8?
By walking another two miles?

The Regulars have just as many lazy fat cunts as the TA, the difference is that you can biff them out of the door a lot easier than we can.

I thought that the TA RE had to carry 20kg, not 15, with weapon and helmet and water on top of that?

Or have I just been hard done by?

I hate that phrase, always when I've just about stopped sweating and caught my breath and feeling quite relaxed.

Damn PTI's ruining my walk.

The giggle being, that its a piece of piss to TAB 8 miles in 2 hours!

Shouldn't be a need to double!

The worst part is when you've got some jack b*stard in front slacking and dropping back, then it's 2 hours of walking and sprinting, I reckon the PTI's put them up to it!!

Send them to the back, 3 warnings to stay up with the squad, after that, on the wagon.

If these things were run properly then it should be an 8 mile TAB.

As a pl sgt in rrtt the cft is always the high point of my weekend. Building them up to 6 miles seems just about manageable right now but next year the 8 mile hurdle is going to require a fleet of mini- busses to the rear. Still, a great way to cut the wheat from the chaff.

The CFT is 4 miles for recruits, 6 miles for trained soldiers, and next year it will be 8 miles!


As for the weight! its 15kgs ex weapon, water bottles and helmet!

But it is so sad that we lost the old standard 10 miler - 2 hours, properly packed CEFO, Platoon weapons, with a ditch, 6@ wall and 100metre carry at the end. That sorted the men out.
