Initial Military Fitness Test


I've heard and read a fair bit on the IMF during my first week at Raleigh but can't actually find out what's involved. Can anyone help?

FFS Matt 1993. Whilst it commendable that you want to prepare for your entry date, knowing the ins/outs of everything is becoming a bit tedious as was explained on a previous thread the you started here.

Drakey.... give it a rest mate. All im trying to do is find information out. You dont have any requirement to reply to what i say so my advice, ignore it :)

@Matt1993 as long as you are physically fit you needn't worry about it. IMF continues throughout basic training. Use the search function on the forum and you'll probably find most of your questions will have been asked and answered before.

Ok. Thanks Jenny and i apologise if i've come across as annoying on here. Just getting nervous about my start date that's all,


War Hero
Fine, you are getting nervous, but you are also not helping yourself. Everyone else has managed to do this without massive injections of possibly out of date advice.

Just to cheer you up - of 32 people on PRNC (North) this week, 4 failed the run and lost their entry dates.

From the same group, three people would've failed the military swimming test.


i'm running 9:06 at the mo so something would have to go seriously wrong for me to fail :) not counting all my chickens, but still.


haha cheers Ninja :) my official time for the PJFT was 9:30 but i've got it down since then. Maybe try and break 9 mins at Collingwood next week

Let's just hope you can take orders and iron.
