What It Measures: Speed, Endurance and Conditioning
Start in a static position at the start line with your entire body behind the line. Cones are placed at interval levels of 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, and 34 yards from the start line. A single timing judge placed at the start line will begin the run with a whistle. Run to the first cone (level 1 at 16 yards) and touch the line with your foot. Turn and run back, crossing the start/finish line with any part of your body. You will hear a whistle that finishes the run attempt at level 1 and designates the start of the 10-second rest period to return to the start position. The timing judge will then whistle to start the next interval (level 2 at 18 yards). Each interval must be completed in ten seconds by crossing the finish line with some part of your body. You will progress through each interval until you fail to cross the finish line before the ten second whistle. Score is the last level completed (1-10+). If you complete level 10, continue at repeating level 10 for additional points (so a score of 11, 12, etc., is possible) until you reach failure. You must initial your score for the judge before you leave the testing area.
