Group Speed Marching

 The speed march is a tactic used by the elite fighting forces to cover large distances as a group. Within any group their is a wide array of fitness standards. This is the same for the military. The Royal Marines and the Parachute Regiment are particular good at this mode of transport.

Moving as a body of men is difficult when you consider the different fitness standards plus the differences in weight individuals may be carrying. For instance, one may be carrying a general purpose machine gun weighing 14kilos with 1000 rounds of ammunition weighing 30 kilos. Compare this to a rifleman carrying an SA80 weighing 5kilos plus 6 magazines weighing 3 kilos.

At the end of a speed march the body of men has to still be capable of entering into, and winning a firefight. 

A speed march accomplishes this by varying the pace between running and walking, usually dependent on the terrain. 

Alpha Monkey uses this technique as a way to build an individual’s endurance and to get the group to locations for circuits etc. It is also a very good way to get beginners covering considerable distances.
