    I was thinking of joining the Army, but how fast do you jog in bootcamp?
    Is it 9 minute mile jog pace?

    Don't be one of those people who strive for the bare minimum for PT. Do not worry about the time, just get in the best shape you can and you will be fine.

    180 steps a min is the usual double-time pace used for calling cadence. that's considered a "jog".

    you'll run faster on actual runs, like a 7-8 min mile pace.

    depends on how fast and how good of shape you are in. the runs will be divided into groups after your first pt test.

    if you hate running strive to be able to pass the pt test time by a minute and a half to two minutes and stay there. that way you are still in one of the slower groups but have a decent buffer on the pt test in case you are having a bad day

    hopefully it's faster than the AFROTC formation run pace where I will sometimes as a joke break stride and powerwalk for a few feet to get the people next to me to laugh a little.

    Ok, I was curious. I usually just jog 7 minute mile pace for a couple miles.

    from what i understand they're divided into 3 groups, A B and C.

    they put you into a group based on your reception 1 mile time.

    7:00 or faster - A
    7:01 - 7:45 - B
    7:46 - 8:30 - C

    depending on which group you fall into determines the pace.

    exactly the same for morning PT while stationed on a ship. If you ran fast you wouldn't have to wait (long) to take a shower. On the other hand if you were slow/fat/walked the distance you would have to stand in line and wait for 30+ dudes to shower.

    your pace should be as fast as the slowest man can run. That's when running in mass formation. The front most right runner should be the slowest.

    Mass formation runs are clusters most of the time though.
