Hi gents,

Will shortly be embarking on the RMR version of Baptist Run and was wondering if anyone has any tips on things to be aware of - i.e. common slip ups that people make? Obviously keep on top of admin at all times, stay cheerful etc. , but is there anything else people often tend to neglect?

Any tips would be much appreciated.

Did you do a RMR version of Baptist Walk before BR?

Nothing complicated to it just be uber pussers with all your kit and pocket contents. Make sure you have 30m paracord, secateurs etc

The night navs will always be the main assessment so just be really sure on your route card/map you're happy with where you are going.

Don't do what someone in my troop did and left his daysack in the middle of Woodbury on one of the night navs...

Good luck!

Cheers mate.

Yeah we did a confirmation ex. last month which we had to pass. No major dramas apart from a bit of extra phys and some dunkings.

I'll make sure I keep my daysack with me at all times.....weapon too..

Clear your map and case of any markings, and your notepad too.

Thanks. The notepad is definitely something I wouldn't have thought of.

Or just carry a 2nd spare new notepad and have that on you during the Kit musters. Much easier then rubbing out a whole notepad!:D

I thought we were supposed to eat any pages that had grid references on? Or is that just once you get to phase 1B?
