1.5 mile runs have been used by the military, police, schools and amateur and professional athletics teams the world over for assessing cardiovascular fitness since the 1960s.
We hold 1.5 mile time trials every six to eight weeks in place of a Tuesday speedwork session.
The time trial data provides useful feedback information which coaches use to plan future training sessions. It also allows runners to predict likely times for their upcoming races.
Full results of time trials since 2011 can be downloaded here.
