PRNC

Alright, just wondering if anyone has any advice they can give me for the PRNC? Going to do it in May and have heard people saying that the fitness is thougher than Raleigh, no idea if that’s true or not.

Hello Joker62!

If you can hit the recommended fitness requirements then I'm sure you have nothing to be concerned about.

The PRNC fitness requirements are quite clear for each age bracket, so if can accomplish what is asked of you (and give it your all) then you'll do great!

My understanding is that there are fitness requirements at Raleigh that you need to pass before passing out - these are different to your PRNC of course, as they expect a natural progression of fitness over the 10 weeks.

I'm training currently for my PRNC in July, but I am aiming for Raleigh run times and over-all fitness so that I can hit the ground running (literally).

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail?

Out of interest, where did you hear that it is harder than Raleigh is it a reliable source of information?

Hope this helps,
~ Misherwut

Hi thanks for the advice.

Someone I know who was in Raleigh a few weeks ago heard it from people who he was training with. He never had to his PRNC so he wouldn’t know.

Interesting! Perhaps some people find the PRNC harder because its over a couple of days?

One more thing, I have just been completing week 8 of the training program that your AFCO give you, just mix it up and make it more difficult some days so that your body doesn't get used to the program. Just try not to injure yourself! :)
 
Just thought I'd add my bit as I have recently passed out of Raleigh.

The fitness at PRNC is tightly packed into a few days which make it harder. We did our 2.5km followed by a short IMF introduction. The next day we did swimming in the morning then a circuit session in the afternoon. The last day we did a squad run with some extras.

At Raleigh the fitness builds up gradually. It's starts to get challenging around week 5 or 6. Most of our class were good with the phys but don't underestimate it as some struggled.
