Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. Was given this the other day about a bloke called John Tarrant who was banned from entering races in the 50/60's due to the old Amateur rule but this bloke could run like the wind and just used to jump the fence and join in races and usually won them. In 1969 he set a world record for 100 miles in 12:30 and won various other Marathons and Ultras.
    He also did some distance tabbing record with the TA but I haven't got to that bit yet!
