Mud Run!

Britain’s Royal Marine recruits show they have what it takes to become part of the elite fighting forces in gruelling Mud Run..

Royal Marines' gruelling Mud Run in Exe Estuary near Lympstone training base turns civilians into commandos | Mail Online

 
They get a good hosing down Sumo, like a lot could do with on this site.

Some waz comments under the article.
When did they stop the kit muster prior to the start of it, and IIRC we got the option of a gratis one prior to pass out to write the troop number in the estuary?
But we all know it's not a "real mud run", ask any potential diver.....;-P
 
That lot were in Wk 4 of training...... I'm sensing the troop fucked up and are being reminded who's in charge.......

When did boiler suits get issued for mud runs? We had to do it in the good old bottom field rig of beasting jacket, denims and rugby shirt.

That's what the instructor said at the beginning of the clip.
 
Closest I got to such activities was on the old Ships Divers course at 'Drake' back in the early '70'. We did it in a divers 'Dry suit'....Was just getting to enjoy it when they sent me back to my ship...qualified (though I'm not sure as what)....:grin:...Like being in a big black Durex, but twice as slippery...and considerably less satisfying....:laughing3:

We got threatened with a mud run in Blues!! I was laffing as I didn't get mine until King's Squad week
TT relented after much shouting and cursing, we were marched down over the lines and in for some remedial PT in Bottom Field rig.
happy days etc.

Seen some training on the estuary before but couldn't tell if it was a mud run or some sort of officer training as they were carrying logs in teams over the mud.

Looked gruelling anyhow.
 
we used to do logs,murder ball ,rugby and firemans carrey.Junior and Senior command courses used to go right over to the Plymouth line on the neep tide.

Then, I'm sorry but you know very little.

Yea, oh well.

All I said was it looked gruelling.

I know the logs are used on camp circuits but not that they were taken out onto mud runs.

So OR recruits do occasionally get log and mud runs?

We used to run with logs all time and i was a tom. We also had a log display team which i was in. Bloody torture that was.
