The best record is held by Kenneth Sherrill with a time of 7.6 minutes. He trained using techniques called progressive overload and supercompensation.

When you run with the military they let you know how far away you are from being allowed to quit. If you're more than 10 minutes ahead or 10 minutes behind your team leader, you can still finish but only if you want to break the record yourself. Otherwise, you should just go for it and enjoy the run.
Running drills with the military is much like running with anyone else. You need to keep up enthusiasm for the task at hand - running - and not get distracted by things like hunger or thirst. However, since the first rule of running is "never run from home," we can assume that food and water are provided before each run.
If you show up late to a run, you will be given an opportunity to start over.

Most campsites are located on military bases, but some Marines live and train in civilian neighborhoods. The base distance of a marathon is 26 miles (42 kilometers). However, since many Marines complete sub-marathons or half marathons, the distances they cover on training runs are often closer to 13.1 miles (21 kilometers) or 6.5 miles (10 kilometers).
In order to keep up with the rigorous physical demands of military service, Marines participate in sports programs designed to strengthen their bodies and minds. These include boxing, wrestling, archery, diving, sniping, surf fishing, spearfishing, kayaking, canoeing, running, swimming, basketball, soccer, football, baseball, softball, volleyball, frisbee golf, rodeo riding, horseback riding, test driving cars, operating heavy equipment, and climbing mountains.
Besides being physically fit, Marines need to be mentally tough as well.

On the field, they can run at least 10 kilometers in 90 minutes. This is the maximum amount of time a player may run in the stadium, no matter what. Whoever runs the shortest distance must complete at least 8 kilometers, while the largest distance must exceed 12-14 kilometers. And it's always been that way. Before the modern game, players could run only on grass or dirt fields, which are less demanding than concrete stadiums today.
A soccer player can run 10 kilometers in an hour, which is faster than the average human can walk.
A professional soccer player can run longer and more intensely than a normal person. In a game, a player might run 10 kilometers or more. Out of competition, a player could run further without suffering any consequences other than losing weight and getting in shape.
A typical soccer match consists of 90 minutes of play followed by 30 minutes of added time if the scores are still level. During that time, the teams will be trying to score goals and prevent their opponents from doing the same. A team will usually have about 11 players on the field at any one time. The remaining players stay in the technical area to provide substitutes. A team's coach can replace a player with a substitute who will have the same impact as the original player; for example, a striker can be replaced by another striker or a midfielder can be replaced by a defender or a forward.
