Group run at the PRNC?

I was just wondering what the group run is at the prnc? I am not talking about the fitness test which is the 2.4km run. I've never heard of it but seen it on twitter the other day. It was just some information on the fitness requirements for passing and it clearly stated the course would involve a "group run", which was on a separate bullet point to the "2.4km run". Just wondering what this is or if it is new since I haven't seen it mentioned on any of the summary threads by members of this forum who've been on the course, or even on the official RN website?

Basically a squad run, where you all run together round the base at a steady pace, then at different points the pti will get you to do various excercises like press ups, squats etc etc, hard but enjoyable

Cheers. Another quick question instead of making a new thread. Do you get to use your own footwear at the prnc? What about Raleigh? I was thinking of replacing my running shoes soon with a decent, quite expensive pair, no point of course if they give you shoes?

You need your own trainers for PRNC (I went during May and this was still the case) and at Raleigh trainers are issued.

If your after expensive footwear, go shop and try them on, get a feel for them and if you like them, note the trainer name, then get them cheaper online. Ones I was after we're £120 in store, £50 online. Happy days!

Thanks. At Raleigh is there a choice to use your own footwear?

Get used to doing things for yourself, it will be expected of you, use the search facility try typing Trainers at Raleigh.

Thanks. I found in one of the threads it says your own trainers can be used for recreational use. I do think it's pretty silly however since everyone has different running styles and trainers to match. Not to mention a change in footwear can actually be the cause of injuries, sometimes very serious.

Bearing in mind you'll have 2 pages worth of kit to pack to take to Raleigh and personal trainers haven't yet made the kit list. I wonder why

Any distance running in boots though? I'm just worried about shin pain which I'm only just getting over after having to postpone my application my 5 month!

cheers

Depends what you call distance. You walk in them for 20Km on dartmoor. You run in them around the camp on stretcher runs. You will do all sorts mate. Your milage may vary. If u have shin splints that can be a bar to entry and if you are found to have them early on u may get medically discharged... just be aware of it.

Well I went back for a second medical and the doc passed me fit, the shin splints were caused by an injury to the knee, which I continued to run on. So it's more of a once off thing than an actual history of them but hopefully the won't return fingers crossed...
