A TOTAL of 650 personnel of the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) took part in an early morning force route walk yesterday.

The force route walk is a quarterly event held to gauge and improve the fitness levels of servicemen and women.

Lieutenant Colonel Amani Suliano said the walk had been a prerogative of the Army Commander, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.

"It is normally a quarterly walk but the commodore thought it would be good for us to hold the walk this morning," Lt-Col Suliano said.

He said the officers walked 15 kilometres from the Queen Elizabeth Barracks through Samabula, Laucala Bay and Vatuwaqa before finishing off again at the QEB.

Lt-Col Suliano said the walk was also a chance for officers in the army and navy to show their camaraderie.
