Does anybody know why the TA CFT is only 4 miles, when the regulars' is 8? (Presume it's not just my corps where this ratio prevails - apologies if this ain't so.) Last time we did a CFT, I think everybody regarded it as a waste of time. Not because they hate PT (although some aren't all that keen), but because 4 miles with a 15 Kg load in 1 hour proves virtually nothing. I appreciate that it's very difficult for reservists to match regular standards of fitness, but if 8 miles is too much (and I don't think it is), couldn't it at least be extended to 6, so the standard takes a bit of effort to achieve? Any thoughts?
