The Trial of Miles is an elimination race where runners face off against each other, and the clock. The race takes place on a one mile course. On the first loop runners must complete the course in under nine minutes. Runners who miss the mark are eliminated. A few minutes later the remaining runners start again, only this time the cutoff time has dropped to 8 minutes. This continues with the cutoff time slowly getting faster and faster: 9:00, 8:00, 7:00, 6:00, 5:30, 5:00, 4:30. Miss the cutoff and you're out. The last person standing wins.
