I'm looking at getting my Downunder boys to complete the Inf 2 Miler. Can someone please let me know the time and weight requirements these days? Meanwhile, I'll work out how to do miles into Kilometres!

The last one I did came under the name (correct me if I'm wrong) of ACFT and was an alterate to the 8 miler for those units that didn't have the time or space.
I think it started with an 800m warm up as a squad in 7 minutes followed by 2.4 Km individual effort in 14 minutes carrying 20Kg plus helmet and weapon, lastly a series of tasks such as casualty drag, wall climb etc.
I know as an instructor at the ITC in the mid 90's when it first opened crow had 20 minutes and the instructors had to do it a minute or two quicker on the Comdt s 'Code Reds'.
First time I did it with the CCF we carried 50lb, no webbing or daysacks - weight in the hands and pockets only and in wet combats and flip-flops.poo_finger said:Last one i did was 45lb + Weapon and Helmet, completed in under 18 minutes.
I f*cking hate it with a passion, the hoop gives it 5 pence 50 pence without fail the minute i know one is coming up!
That said i do always pass!
