					                                           The Beep Test
     The beep test is run over a 20m distance. It is a shuttle run that increases speed. The
     runner runs for as long as they can at the pace determined by the beeps on the CD.

     The runner must reach and touch each line just before pr as the audio beeps. When the
     runner can no longer keep up with the beeps they must stop. As the test progresses the
     speed of the beep increase thus making it harder to maintain the correct pace. The table
     below gives you some ideas of the distance travelled for each level and the total time
     spent running.
