Ideally candidates should have a few practice runs on a treadmill prior to the PJFT rather than put themselves under unnecessary pressure on the day.

The fitness centre should set the minimum speed to pass. For Musicians, bearing in mind you need to get-up to speed, anything between 13-14 kph will bring you in under 11 minutes.

Remember to tell the training centre staff you're joining the Band, not the Commandos otherwise they will put an incline on the treadmill & set a higher speed as they will be unfamiliar with Royal Marines Musician PJFT parameters as there are considerably less frequent than Commandos.

Good luck.
