Run 1.5 miles (2.4km) in as quick as time as possible. Walking is allowed, though the participants must be encouraged to push themselves as hard as they can.
Start and finish in the same location
To ensure that participants don't just run down a big hill to get a good time/distance, you are required to finish the run in roughly the same spot in which you started. You can achieve this by either running a looped route or by running out halfway, turning around, and returning to your starting position.
Set treadmill gradient to 2.5%
