Miss Cumbria, Cara Forrester was put through her paces “Army Style” last Monday as part of her preparation for the Miss England Finals.
Cara travelled down to the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham for the Miss England Sports Boot Camp Event.
Army Physical Training Instructors from www.regimentfitness.co.uk put all 61 finalists through a gruelling 2 hour fitness test.
The contestants took part in warm up exercises as well as Army Drills including Press Ups, Sit Ups, Burpies and Shuttle Runs.
The Top 20 contestants were then “rewarded” by taking part in one final test, the Army Bleep Test.
A running endurance test where the prize for the last girl standing was a fast track place in the Top 15 at the Miss England Final.
Cara did magnificently, but narrowly lost out to eventual Miss England Sportswoman award winner
Jade Williams (Miss Stratford Upon Avon).
Cara said of the experience;
“I’ve had a fantastic day, even thought it was really tough, it was a great chance to meet all the other Finalists. “
Cara now has 3 weeks to prepare for the Miss England Final on 19th July in Birmingham.
