Seventeen-year-old Luke Featherstone, of west Hull, took part in several pulls.
He said: "It was hard but I got it done in the end. I want to join the army so it was good to see them come out today and show they don't just care about the country but the people too."
Lt Nic Usher, of 250 Squadron 3 Medical Regiment, which is based at Wenlock Barracks, said: "In effect the army is a fitness and strength organisation and at the moment there is a recruitment drive for the reserve forces. We are always interested in getting involved with activities with young people to show them joining the army can be a very rewarding experience."
