Shuttle runs use a series of lines to challenge the players to run continuously for a set time or distance


  • Mark a series of lines at increasing distances from the start line
  • Different coloured markers can be used to identify the different lines for young children
  • The players run continuously out and back to each successive line

Key Points

  • Ensure the players have enough room to perform the exercise safely
  • Use short strides when turning and longer strides when running in a straight line


  • An inventory of equipment to support ABC exercises is available in the Resources section
