CONDITIONING OBSTACLE COURSE
Obstacle course running develops physical capacities, fundamental skills, and abilities that are important to Soldiers in combat operations. Soldiers must be able to crawl, creep, climb, walk, run, and jump. Furthermore, with individual body armor and fighting load, they must be able to perform all these tasks for long periods of time without exhaustion or injury, even after fatigue has set in. Refer to Appendix E for obstacle negotiation.
