Challenge yourself against other new recruits worldwide!

The Super Recruit Challenge is a virtual 5K that you can participate in from any outdoor location or gym – in any global location. You can choose to run, ride or row the distance – and see how you compare against your peers or other recruits around the world.

The challenge takes place throughout the year, with Winter (1 December to 28 February), Spring (1 March to 31 May), Summer (1 June to 31 August) and Autumn (1 September to 30 November) editions available.

Leaderboards will be updated at the end of each season, with end of season prizes up for grabs for the fastest men and women to take part.

Get competitive!

Results can be compared against those of the same age, gender, military rank and worldwide location. End of season prizes are available to the fastest men and women.
