The tests are standardized. You can perform the tests while walking or running, depending on your doctor's advice and your overall wellbeing. The elderly, beginners and persons with health issues should choose the walk endurance test of 600 meters, while the rest can do the run endurance test of 2000 meters.
When starting, you should be fully rested, properly dressed and warmed up. Get acquainted with the instructions and the trail. It is important that you do not exaggerate at the beginning, but rather accelerate towards the end.
Record the time you need to perform the test. Based on it, select the most appropriate activity and length of the tracks.
Before performing the endurance test, consult your doctor, as both intense tests require your maximum effort. Do not do the tests in hot weather under the sun. Keep at least half a liter of water or other refreshing beverage on hand to replace the lost liquid.
