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:

  2. if you are a girl, yes, if youre a bloke then its 10 mins 30 seconds.
  3. If I recall, the run time is 12.5 mins for males recruits and 14 for female. Someone at a phase 1 establishment please feel free to correct me but I think thats the times, and there is a 6 mile CFT for recruits also.

    Under CMS(E) it may have changed, its been a long time.
  4. S*ck me sideways 8O

    The Army must be desperate, raising the timings that far.
    I thought it was still 10:30 for males and 13:00 for fems (which I thought was very forgiving)...
