The present study was conducted to objectively investigate the effects of music upon human performance during an endurance event. If a regulation of human performance can be established, music could be an invaluable aid for use during physical activity. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of different types of music upon performance of an endurance event. The following two hypotheses were investigated:
1. There is no significant difference among the five treatments on distance performance of an endurance event.
2. There is no significant difference among the five treatments on heart rate before and during an endurance event.
