It was good to have a chat with about a third of you on PRMC at lunchtime today, just prior to the Endurance Course. Well done all who passed & good luck to those entering into recruit training shortly & indeed those returning to retake PRMC in the near future.
Interestingly today there was a guy who had unknowingly already passed PRMC on points but who withdrew himself on the bottom field determination test, which is a real sickener. Again it's very much the State of mind.
Just to add this course was filmed today and the video should appear on YouTube fairly soon - if you see it before me, please embed it on this thread.
Teams will go head to head over 5 stations. The stations will follow the training and ethos of the Royal Marines and we would like to open up this event to anyone who would like to have a bash at it. We won't kill you - it is just a bit of fun! You can enter as a team (maximum of 6) or if you're desperate to have a go but can't get anyone to join you, then don't worry ..... sign up individually and we will make up teams on the day.
COST: ENTRY £26.99 + MINIMUM SPONSORSHIP £25pp

The 12 week pre-PRMC Fitness Training Plan is now available in a newer PDF Format, below.
"The 12 week training programme is appropriate for males and females to conduct and use as a guide prior to attending a Potential Officer (POC) or Royal Marine Course (PRMC).

Each block is replicated, progressively increasing the difficulty of each circuit, run and exercise. The level to begin will depend on the person’s fitness ability, ensuring progressive physical gains are achieved, developing muscular adaptation and the cardiovascular system.
All potential candidates are advised to conduct the training programme and to ensure they are confident of successfully passing the physical requirements of the POC or PRMC before attending.
