2,000m Sprint for Time

Run 2,000m (1.25 miles) for time.


You must finish your run in the same location in which you started.



    Once the recruit passes Stage 1, the candidate moved to Central Selection, which takes place at the British Gurkha camp in Pokhara. This is where the challenges start to increase in difficulty, getting longer and harder.

    The aim of this test is to complete the 2,000 meter course in the quickest possible time.
