I wouldnt worry about selection its unfailable unless uve got 3 legs or cant be bothered, if ure unlucky you might get retested at a hospital about the medical but it happens to alot of people. Running times and that are not that important you will drop at least a min off your time come the end of basic should you make it. Good luck and dont worry just nuckle down!
If its not rainning its not trainning

yeah, even some kids get in! So no need to worry really. Just prepare and you'll be fine. Sad thing is you don't really need to prepare that well, but I have a feeling that will all change rapidly when your in!

Just makes me think if I should try out for the RM instead; Gotta a feeling it would be more rewarding! But thinking about it, scares the shit out of me lol

If someone could post the times in plain text format it would make this sticky a wee bit more useful for all the folks wanting to know.
Thanks.

ive just got mine under 9 minutes at 8:51 and i do it by running fast from the start and trying to maintain that speed all the way round

For RSC, you are required to complete the run in a certain time depending on your trade. Infantry being the quickest time, but your allowed extra time for junior entry and above certain ages. This is done with only a slight warm up. Whereas once in phase 1 or thereafter you complete a 800m, run/walk pace, followed by stretches. But your time is reduced again depending on your job choice. Youll find that the failure rate once passed out is very very low, but you do get another chance some time later. Hope this helps.

Right so to be defintely clear the 1.5mile run for infantry is either:
A) 10:30
B)11:30
C)12:45

If your're 100% certain please let us know cause there seems to be a little confusion.

Cheers :)

Corrected to remove TEXT SPEAK!!!

It would also be quite respectful to army recruits if you paid heed to their efforts instead of gobbing off about how much better you think you could do than (God forbid) join the army.

''Unfailable?'' What sort of English is that?

''Even with three legs.'' What would you know? Done army basic, have you?

''Don't have to prepare that well.''

I've seen lads prepare for the army. My own included.

My God ...... you arrogant lumps of dung! :evil:

When you get your spelling and grammar right (ie 'you're a right tosser' as opposed to 'your a right tosser' and you can ''knuckle'' down as opposed to 'nuckle') then feel free to tell the world how bloody smart you are.

One angry Jayne! :evil:

Calm down Flighty, it was four years ago, they MAY have learned to spell since then. They might even have joined up as well, who knows...
