Coopers 12-min run

coopertestCoopers 12-min run is the classical running test for estimating aerobic fitness. Run as far as you can on a flat surface for 12 minutes.

1. Warm up
2. Run as far as you can within 12 minutes. Should preferably be performed on a 400 m track.
3. Note how far you got and enter the distance, weight and gender in the calculator.


This calculator is also included in Fitness Test pro
Get it from App Store


The 12 min run test is also known as the Cooper test. It was developed in the sixties as an easy tool to estimate VO2max in soldiers.

The validity of this test is quite good if you are accustomed to running. For people not used to running it can be difficult to administer the speed from start to end and also peripheral discomfort in the legs can limit performance rather than circulatory capacity.

Correlation between field and treadmill testing as a means of assessing maximal oxygen intake.

When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
from now on each time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact
same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
