Previous studies have demonstrated that the 5-minute run test (5MRT) is a valid test in determining cardiovascular (CV) endurance. This study was done to develop norms for the 5MRT for college-age students. The subjects were 195 men and 191 women attending Brooklyn College and Loma Linda University. Test-retest reliability was established (r=0.93) for the 5MRT with 20 subjects. The distance run on the 5MRT by all the subjects were used to develop norms using percentiles. Fitness categories were established using standard deviations from the mean.
