How do you compare to a Royal Marine?

Royal Marines are required to undertake over 32 weeks of training to gain their Green Beret, but before they make it to Lymphstone they have to undertake the Royal Marines Pre Joining Fitness Test.

This involves two runs of 1.5 miles (2.4 km) each with the treadmill set at a 2% incline.

To pass you will need to do the first run in under 12 minutes 30 seconds. Then complete the second 2.4km run immediately afterwards in less than 10 minutes – regardless of your age.



Those wishing to become a Royal Marine are also required to crank out:

– As many Press-ups as possible in 2 mins (min target: 60)
– 2 mins rest
– As many Sit-ups as possible in 2 mins (min target: 80)
– 2 mins rest
– As many pull-ups as you can do without letting go (min target: 6)

So do you have what it takes to pass the Royal Marine fitness test? If so post your results below in the comments section.
