Course Details

WEEK 1 - POWER
1 mins best effort
2 mins best effort
3 mins best effort

Speed and explosive power are important components of success in many aspects of running, fitness and life. The aim of the speed test above is to perform the three separate runs to cover the most distance as possible in the times set above. The distances across the three efforts will then be summed together and points awarded accordingly.

WEEK 2 - SPEED
1 mile for time
5k mile for time

These runs test the individual's aerobic capacity and the ability of the heart and lungs to provide the body with oxygen for exercise. This is important in running, fitness and sport as it tests the individual's cardiovascular system's ability to continuously provide the muscle with adequate levels of oxygen to perform.

WEEK 3 - STRENGTH
Plank Test
Wall Sit Test
Jelly Legs

Strength week consists of two basic strength tests, Plank Test and Wall Sit Test, to measure the strength in your core and quad muscles. Jelly Legs is a brutal progressive every minute on the minute challenge consisting of air squats and squat jumps. These test are sure to get the lactic acid bubbling, testing the strength of your body and mind.

WEEK 4 - ENDURANCE
Weekly distance accumulator challenge

Advanced: 40 miles
Intermediate: 30 miles
Moderate: 20 miles
Novice: 10 miles

Endurance running requires stamina as well as large amounts of mental strength. The aim of the final challenge is to accumulate the set distance above relevant to your level of entry throughout the week. You may break up the distance into as many separate workouts as you wish, however, more points are awarded for the fewer workouts taken to achieve the distance.
