They invited you for a visit and interview at another time or that evening? What did they tell you about training? Did they say there is a two week alternativ...

I thought the Forces in Afghanistan were sporting beards these days because local Afghanis expect men to have beards, so it's a part of the "hearts&minds" to have British Forces with beards too. ARen't the beards some sort of show of respect to the locals, nothing to do with being "special" forces.

Sounds like more people should have a crack at RMAD before heading off to PRMC, if for no other reason than to reaffirm their readiness. I wonder how many of the "harsher" PRMCs had high numbers of participants, is it just a way of weeding more people out? Good effort EA.

Security reasons perhaps. Unsecured vehicles of serving British military personel seems a tempting target for terrorists.

I know a couple of guys who run 100mile weeks who wear shoes with the least "support", granted they are both racing whippets and are both pretty good club runners (around 2:30 marathon) but as I said, each to their own.

As with most things there are several schools of thought regarding running shoes.

Have a look in the back of a copy of Runner's World, they have listings of running shops around the country.

Have a look at this pdf, it's 3 years out of date mind.

If I read that correctly you only have to make VA3 for RM.
