Can you pass the RAF Gunner Selection Course.
Here’s a little test for all. Can you pass the RAF Regiment Gunner Pre-Joining Fitness Test? This is not the test to get in obviously, but a test to see if you can actually apply.
RAF Regiment Gunners carry out combat operations all over the world. Therefore they need to be very fit, so their specialised pre-joining fitness test is designed accordingly.
The question is can you pass? If so how easy was it, if not, how hard was it? Feel free to post your times below.
To pass you will need to meet the following, it is very simple :
Run 2.4km (1.5 miles) in under 10 mins 30 seconds on a treadmill. Then perform 20 press-ups and 30 sit-ups (That’s the easy bit)
Obviously a lot of people like myself will find the press-ups and sit-ups very easy, it’s the run which is a problem! Hmmmm 1.5 mile, yes, a piece of cake with no time frame but doing it in 10:30 well, you need to run, fast.
Lets give it a go, please feel free to post your times below, I will be doing this next time I am in the gym.
