Depends on what time of the year it is.

If its wet, add 2 mins onto the time you have, because its a bog. Ice will add a minute of so for the turns and the risk of a injury. Summer is a breeze.

Good luck!

You need to get outdoors & do it cos it's quite different! (I actually prefer it to a treadmill but many find it more difficult). I'm off to Raleigh in May & I'm on 13 minutes (But I am old.. & a woman!)

Good luck!

P.S. It's done on a track at Raleigh, so I'm told

The Raleigh 1.5 mile timed runs are done around the all-weather pitches. So nice and flat with a decent surface to run on. If you've passed your pre-joining run at Fitness First, then you should really by now be running outdoors in preparation for your timed run at HMS Raleigh. If you fail the timed run they can now send you straight home, so good preparation is a must.

Your own CA should have advised you of this at your final entry briefing

Get an effing grip, you're joining the armed forces! Get your running bats on and start beating the road up. Treadmills are fake and you need to add a minute to your "real" time. I take it you are a young(ish) man you should be aiming for 9.30 at least.

Right I'm going to be different, you don't need to be running every day to get fit. I run 2-3 times a week and finally got my run time within the seven minute mark. I do a couple of five milers a week and sometimes if I can't be arsed running I do interval training on the rowing machine.

Here is what I do on the rowing machine

300 meters in a minute followed by a minute rest and repeat 8 times making sure all your times are under a minute.
Give it a go it's a ball busting quick session.
