Hey I looked around the forum and couldn’t see anything on whether the 13km march  has in fact been reduced to 5km. This was reported a few months back and I’m wondering if BMQ and or BMOQ has updated the course reflect the new lesser distance requirement.

Correct, the 13 km March is no more and yes I know for sure that the July 2 BMOQ this year reflected that. I understand that BMQ also changed.

Oh man this is music to my ears. Thank you for the feedback. Could totally do it but it’s a lot of wear and tear on these ol’ Bones and tendons. Obstacles, running bursts, Sleep deprivation - no problem. But rubbing tendons on bones repetitively for hours on end- that’s just pointless exposure to long term issues.

Rucking is part of being in the Army, and it's a battle task standard to complete a 12km march. It may not be at BMOQ, but if you join the Army you are going to ruck. If that doesn't sound acceptable, find a NavRes unit near you to join.

There are a lot of other repetitive movements with and without weight you’ll encounter during course, which will possibly aggravate what you mentioned, so be prepared.

bmq has a 5km ruck march in week 3-4  and an 8km ruck march in week 6, aswell in Normandy week 9 you do the march and shoot which is 3.8k to the range than 3.8k back.
just finished bmq last week and this is how all the platoons have scheduled

Or if you get posted to a 2 Brigade unit, the 20+km Rucking Bear is always fun too.

The 5km ruck is an absolute minimum...be prepared to do a lot more.

I want to add some of that to my work out routine before i leave for St Jean

10 min a km is about the slowest I'm used to rucking.

I applied Reg. Force, ROTP/RMC. After CFAT : background check, medical, interview.....in that order (for me anyway). I applied first week of September and everything was finished last week. I qualified for my selected trade, just waiting on update.
