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. Does anyone know the dates for 2009 Midlands Challenge? I'm starting phase 1 training in January for Assault Pioneers but my gaffer is not letting me rearrange weekend shifts to cover all my training. I've heard that they are running 3 challenges this year (spring, summer, autumn) and my place of work will be shut down for 3 weeks both spring and summer so i could make up training if this possible. Any info appreciated. Cheers

    Also forgot to add - is it possible to combine weekend training with midlands challenge?
  2. The dates for the 5 Div Challenges in the Midlands are as follows:

    5xx 143 (WM) Spring Challenge 28 Mar – 9 Apr

    5xx 143 (WM) Midland Challenge 3-27 Jul

    There are others in other Divisions - see your local RTC dates.

    The Midlands Challenge website - www.midlandschallenge.co.uk has not been updated yet.
  3. Yes you can combine the two (weekends and a Challenge course) but there will be quite a bit of duplication. Try to get on Spring challenge and get the training out of the way asap but remember that you need to do a CIC within a period of time afterwards. Summer challenge has a CIC bolted onto it, in 08 it was really good and the whole 4 week course was a major benefit to those who did it- or at least I hope so as I was an instructor on it....
  4. just been on the website and they say they are no longer recruiting for it.
  5. ur right! thats last years website
