What are the alternate events for the APFT run?

Got a bet going on with my Squad leader that there are only 3 alternate aerobic events for the PT test: Bike, Swim, and Walk. Are there any more?

It looks like your squad leader beat you on a technicality. There are four events if you include both types of bike tests:

  1. 800-Yard-Swim Test
  2. 6.2-Mile Stationary-Cycle Ergometer Test
  3. 6.2-Mile Bicycle Test
  4. 2.5-Mile Walk Test
