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. If you can cover 1500m in 6min 52sec, roughly what would be the time for mile and a half?

    Yes, this is me, and yes, I can keep going for a few miles at a time... just no clue about exact times and distances since allergic to running tracks / stopwatches etc. The time above done at a one-off fitness assessment doo-dah.

    Thanks :)
  2. It would depend on whether it was an African or European mile and whether or not you were carrying a coconut :D
  3. English miles, and no.

    You're bored, aren't you?
  4. was it a straight mile, or did it have bends in it?
  5. Along a bit of the Serpentine (straightish), turn left across the bridge, left again, and then straightish again to where the end was.

    Told you I don't 'do' running tracks. Or cross-country...

    Blimey. Thought it would be ages before anyone noticed this! Sunday and all. 8O
  6. Roughly 11 mins 05 seconds for 1.5 miles at that pace.

    Clever? - nope
    Bored? - yup

  7. Muchos gracias :D

    Who knows what might happen with someone shouting at me too ;)
  8. With that sort of time you could be the fittest person in the RAF :)
  9. Me? - RA f*ckin' F !! Right, outside now. Never been a crab w*nker, never will be. Come on then outside. [​IMG]

    Oh f*ck. That was a bite wasn't it. Bugger. [​IMG]
  10. Seeing as he's always slagging them I reckon Geordie Blerk is a failed Crab.
