The Course  

Each lap has a start and finish time. Take it easy to begin with, the first few laps give you plenty of time to complete them at a leisurelt pace, but as laps go on, the pressure builds as the time allowed gets shorter. Complete as many laps as you can before the time beats you...There will be one Survivor, the last person standing!
