PRNC

The RN website has a good video on the PRNC. You'll be fine if you can run 2.4km in 12.19, you get 13.15 plus 10%. Dont forget the swim and enjoy it I have a relative thats just been for their PRNC.

I've finally been called up and been told I have to do the PRNC between September 2011 and February 2012 (my AFCO isn't the most organised of ones!)
I've looked up many threads on here on the PRNC and online but I'm still not 100% sure on certain things..
For 18 year old females, is the 2.4km run still 14:15mins or has this been changed? and how long is the warm up because I read somewhere that thanks to the warm up, people failed and their AFCO rang them up saying their date for basic has been cancelled.. I can run 2.4km in about 12:19mins so I'm positive I'll do it but I'm just curious.
Thank you! :)
Probably not too shrewd to register a user name that identifies you & then suggest your AFCO isn't particularly well organised.

Are you confusing PJFT (Pre Joining Fitness Test) with the PRNC (Pre Royal Navy Course), I wonder?

PJFT (For females aged 15-24) is 2.4Km on a treadmill in under 13 mins 15 secs
PRNC (For females aged 15-24) is 2.4Km outdoor run in under 13 mins 15 seconds (with 10% lee-way)

When you commence Initial Naval Training (INT) you must complete the 2.4Km outdoor run in under 13 mins 15 secs with no lee-way.

Assuming your application is now being moved forward as there was a relatively long wait to join your chosen branch, it would be unusual to announce in January 2012 that you will be attending a PRNC from September onwards last year, although it's appreciated Dr Who may have left a Tardis loafing in your area.

Generally a PRNC is usually booked after an entry date is allocated to commence Initial Naval Training, usually within six months of joining. A PJFT, on the other hand, needs to be passed within 28 days of being passed fit at the medical examination.

The warm up they do at the prnc is fairly epic well mine was any way, but that should be no excuse to fail it to be honest, one lad found the warm up very hard as he told us he could run the 2.4k in 8.13, after the warm up he managed a 13.50?! Lying prick.

I realise I didn't write this clearly, I do apologise! My recruitment officer is very helpful, saying that they were disorganised was because they are never able to give me a clear 'set in stone' date for things. (For example, I had to redo my medical because they lost my forms and they gave me a 6 month gap of when my PRNC could be).
Still not too clear, however not to worry. I suggest you change your user name slightly and think before you post. You've no ideal who is on RR. I could be your AFCO!

Your thinking of the admiral, he failed too but I'm talking about bolt with the pulled hamstring, he thought the best way to impress the staff at the prnc was to call one of them fat and laughed at him because he was up for lossing his job with all the cut backs!
