# 15m Bleep Test Calculations

Here is a table of the number of shuttles required to run for each level of the 15m bleep test, with calculations for the speeds, times and distances for each level. There is a similar table for the 15m PACER test which has very different timings. See also a similar table for the 20m beep test.

Level No. Shuttles Speed (km/hr) Time per shuttle (seconds) Total Dist. (meters) Total time (min:sec)
1 7 7.88 6.83 105 0:48
2 8 8.52 6.36 225 1:39
3 8 8.69 6.11 345 2:28
4 8 9.33 5.75 465 3:14
5 9 10.13 5.43 600 4:02
6 9 10.62 5.13 735 4:49
7 10 10.94 4.97 885 5:38
8 10 11.42 4.78 1,035 6:26
9 10 11.74 4.59 1,185 7:11
10 11 12.39 4.39 1,350 8:00
11 11 12.87 4.16 1,515 8:56
12 12 13.67 3.92 1,695 9:33
13 12 14.00 3.85 1,875 10:19
14 13 14.16 3.76 2,070 11:08
15 13 14.96 3.59 2,265 11:55
16 13 15.28 3.47 2,460 12:40
17 14 15.93 3.25 2,670 13:35

Note: the above table values is believed to be correct, and is the same as the 15m Bleep test audio files that are currently available online However, a presentation by Kevin Sykes online describes the test differently, with the 15m version as being designed so that the running speed at each level is same as 20m test, with the same number of turns per level as the duration of each level is reduced from 1min to 45secs.
