  • Brief


A progressive endurance running challenge. The test requires participants to run quarter mile (400m) shuttles between two points, beating the starting target time above. However, after each split, the time limit per shuttle is lessened by 5 seconds. The test continues until the runner fails to run the distance at the required time.

Starting Split Times:

Advanced: 2m 10s

Intermediate: 2m 30s

Moderate: 2m 50s

Novice: 3m 10s


  • Timing device, i.e. stop watch or fitness tracker


  • You must run shuttles between two points

    Once your fitness tracker says you've hit the required distance, turn around straight away and begin the next shuttle.


  • Utilise the 'Lap' feature on your fitness tracker

    In order to effectively measure your shuttle time between the two points, hit the 'lap' button on your fitness tracker or stop watch at the end of each shuttle.
