Parameters such as a maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and velocity at which VO2max occurs (VelVO2max) are often used to training control purposes to enhance runner’s performance. This study had two purposes: (i) determine the relationship between VelVO2max obtained in continuous incremental filed test (CIFT) and VelVO2max determined on a treadmill in a laboratory; and (II) verify if it is possible to estimate the VO2max based on CIFT velocity
