To 30 years of their publication, the course navette test of 20 meters with stages of one minute (20m-SRT) continues being the test but used worldwide, so much in the area of health, school and sport. This is due to the feasibility, validity in a wide range of ages and populations, reliability and sensibility. However the main reason of its applicability is due to the original idea of running in a reduced space of 20 meters, without the necessity of using an athletics track. The present article has as objective to revise the most outstanding investigation works in the 20m-SRT published in the last 30 years and its applicability in the field.
