The Fallen: Week 3 | Heavy Boots

  • Heavy Boots

    5-Mile Weighted March for Time

Once recruits pass their initial pre-selection fitness tests they will usually take part in a weighted march for time. 

  • Brief

Instructions

  • Participants are required to march 5 miles whilst carrying a load or weighted vest specific to their level of entry. 


    5 Mile Weighted March

    Advanced: 20kg

    Intermediate: 15kg

    Moderate: 10kg

    Novice: 5kg

Requirements

  • Finish the run in the same place in which you started

    To ensure that participants don't just run down a big hill to get a good time/distance, you are required to finish the run in roughly the same spot in which you started. You can achieve this by either running a looped route or by running out halfway, turning around, and returning to your starting position.

  • Use a weighted rucksack or weighted vest

    You may carry the weight in either a weighted rucksack or weighted vest. For maximum stability, load your backpack so the heaviest weight is next to your back and centred in the pack. 

  • Photograph the weight on scales

    To evidence the weight you must take a picture of the weight on a set of scales before the march.

  • Set treadmill to 2.5%

    It is preferred that you tackle this challenge outside. However, if you are unable to do so, you may use a treadmill to complete the challenge. If you do decide to use a treadmill, you must set the treadmill gradient to 2.5%.
