Life is sustained through physical activity. The Nature scope and worth of physical activity require study from the various scientific disciplines, in order to ensure proper use of activity for favorable development. Running is the supreme cardiovascular conditioning activity. It is the standard against which all other exercises and programmes can be measured, running stresses the heart and lungs more than almost any other forms of physical activity, while running, the heart rate rise and remain elevated, rather than fluctuating up and down as it does in other games. Therefore, realizing that when the running will be done on different surfaces, it will call for different cardiovascular responses. The study of this aspects will highlight to coaches and physical education teachers to prepare conditioning programme according the stress particular surface puts on an individual.
