Two-Mile Run (2MR)

You’ll run two miles for time on a measured, generally flat outdoor course.

The 2MR assesses the Aerobic Endurance component of fitness. Higher aerobic endurance enables you to work for long periods of time and recover more quickly when executing repetitive physical tasks.

Course options

The 2MR can be completed on an indoor or outdoor track, or an improved surface like a road or sidewalk. It cannot be tested on unimproved terrain, but out-and-back or lap track courses are authorized.
