Agility Training Areas[edit | edit source]
Agility Training Areas are identified with a running figure icon on the world map. These areas contain an Agility course that players will need to complete to train their Agility. An Agility course is completed by successfully passing all obstacles. It is, however, possible to fail an obstacle, which will result in the character taking small amounts of damage. Therefore, it is advised to bring some food when planning on training Agility at lower Agility and Hitpoints levels.
On many courses, the amount of damage taken after failing an obstacle is based on your remaining Hitpoints, so to conserve food it is often worthwhile to wait until your Hitpoints are low before eating. For example, falling into the lava might cause 12 points of damage in the Wilderness course if at full Hitpoints, but only 6 if there are just 20 Hitpoints left.
For the best experience rates, it is required to continually keep running around the courses. This might result in quickly draining the character's run energy, therefore it can be helpful to bring some energy potions, super energy potions or stamina potions, or to wear weight-reducing clothing while training Agility:
Contrary to popular belief, weight does not affect the chance of success for most obstacles. However, there are a few obstacles which were differently coded for certain quests and activities, such as the Zip line from the the Werewolf Agility Course.

Regular courses[edit | edit source]
These course consist of completing a circuit of obstacles.
Gnome Stronghold Agility Course[edit | edit source]
The Gnome Stronghold Agility Course is the Agility course that most players will start at when planning on training their Agility. This course has no requirements to access and is very easy to follow. Additionally, it is impossible to fail any of the obstacles at this course, so it is not necessary to bring any food. However, some energy potions, super energy potions or stamina potions may be helpful for faster training.
A lap will take a minimum of 34 seconds to complete. Therefore, the average experience per hour will be around 8,000-9,250, depending on the player's concentration.
Penguin Agility Course[edit | edit source]
This Agility course requires level 30 Agility and is located on the Iceberg, which requires completion of Cold War to access. To get to the course, players need to transform into a penguin, which can be done by talking to Larry with a clockwork suit in the inventory and choosing the Tuxedo time option.
Due to the success rate of the obstacles, the experience rates scale with the player's Agility level. At higher levels expect to be able to complete around 55 laps per hour, resulting in 29,500-30,000 Agility experience per hour.
This course has the highest base chance to receive the giant squirrel. At level 99 Agility, it would take an average of 130 hours to get the giant squirrel.
Barbarian Outpost Agility Course[edit | edit source]
The Barbarian Outpost Agility Course requires level 35 Agility and completion of Alfred Grimhand's Barcrawl to access. This course is a lap-based obstacle course consisting of eight obstacles that players can traverse in return for Agility experience. If all obstacles are passed in the correct order, some bonus experience is rewarded at the end of the lap.
With an average time of 32 seconds per lap, it is possible to get upwards of 17,000 Agility experience per hour from this course. At lower Agility levels, expect to get around 11,000-14,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on concentration levels.
Ape Atoll Agility Course[edit | edit source]
The Ape Atoll Agility Course requires level 48 Agility and completion of Chapter 2 of Monkey Madness I to access. To train at this course, players need to transform into a monkey, which can be done by equipping a Ninja monkey greegree or Kruk monkey greegree. This course is a lap-based obstacle course consisting of six obstacles that players can traverse in return for Agility experience. If all obstacles are passed in the correct order, some bonus experience is rewarded at the end of the lap.
With an average time of 39 seconds per lap, it is possible to get upwards of 53,300 Agility experience per hour from this course. At lower Agility levels, expect to get around 40,000-50,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on concentration levels.
Wilderness Agility Course[edit | edit source]
The Wilderness Agility Course requires level 52 Agility to access. However, this level is only needed to access the course through the gates; the minimum level requirement of the obstacles is level 49. Therefore, it is a popular method to access this course by using a temporary skill boost to access the course starting at level 47, since the experience per hour at this course is far superior to other courses available to these players. The Agility course consists of five obstacles that players can pass in return for Agility experience. If all obstacles are passed in the correct order, some bonus experience is rewarded at the end of the lap.
Since this Agility course is located deep in the Wilderness, ranging from level 50 to 56, is it possible to come across player killers while training there. Additionally, there are two level 25 skeletons roaming the Agility course that will attack any player near them.
With an average time of 40 seconds per lap, it is possible to get upwards of 47,500 Agility experience per hour from this course. At lower Agility levels, expect to get around 40,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on concentration levels.
Werewolf Agility Course[edit | edit source]
The Werewolf Agility Course requires level 60 Agility and completion of Creature of Fenkenstrain to access. To get to the course, players need to be wearing a ring of charos. The Agility course consists of five obstacles that players can pass in return for Agility experience. If the stick is collected and turned in at the end of the lap, some bonus experience is rewarded. The only failable obstacle on this course is the notorious deathslide, which can hit over 30 damage.
This course offers the highest potential experience per hour rates of all Agility courses. However, it requires a lot more concentration than other courses offering pretty similar experience rates.
With an average time of 38 seconds per lap, it is possible to get upwards of 69,500 Agility experience per hour from this course. At lower Agility levels, expect to get around 60,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on concentration levels.
Prifddinas Agility Course[edit | edit source]
The Prifddinas Agility Course requires level 75 Agility and completion of Song of the Elves to access. The Agility course consists of twelve obstacles that players can pass in return for Agility experience. This Agility course is unique to other courses; in that, portals can appear at various points throughout the course. Entering these portals will teleport the player one or two obstacles further, slightly decreasing the time needed to complete the course and thus increasing the experience per hour rate. Additionally, approximately 15 crystal shards can be found per hour by entering these portals.
With an average time of 72 seconds per lap, it is possible to get upwards of 66,000 Agility experience per hour from this course. At lower Agility levels, expect to get around 60,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on concentration levels.
Rooftop Agility courses[edit | edit source]
Chances of obtaining marks of grace are reduced to 20% of the normal rate if the player's Agility level is 20 levels higher than the course requirement. Until the player reaches that level, marks of grace will continue to spawn normally.
|Course||Obstacles||Exp. per lap||Lap time [d 1]||Exp. per hour [d 2]||Marks of grace per hour|
|10||Draynor Village Rooftop Course||7||120||72 t||10,000||12 [d 3]|
|20||Al Kharid Rooftop Course||8||180||108 t||10,000||8|
|30||Varrock Rooftop Course||9||238||110 t||13,000||13|
|40||Canifis Rooftop Course||8||240||75 t||19,200||16 [d 4]|
|50||Falador Rooftop Course||12||440||97 t||27,200||13|
|60||Seers' Village Rooftop Course||6||570||74 t
(58 t)[d 5]
|70||Pollnivneach Rooftop Course||9||890||102 t||52,300||9 [d 3]|

|90||Ardougne Rooftop Course||7||793||76 t||62,600||22|
- Including running back to the first obstacle. Measured in game ticks. 1 game tick equals 0.6 seconds.
- These are the highest possible experience per hour rates, assuming perfect laps. So expect to get (slightly) lower rates, depending on Agility level and concentration.
- Measured for one hour only.
- Tested from 0 - 260 marks. Total active time 16 hours and 20 minutes. Average time per mark 3 minutes and 40 seconds.
- The course is significantly quicker when casting Camelot Teleport to the Seers' Village bank after completing the course. This teleport location is unlocked after completing the hard Kandarin Diary.
Other courses[edit | edit source]
These courses consist of something else than just completing a circuit of obstacles.
Brimhaven Agility Arena[edit | edit source]
The Brimhaven Agility Arena is very different to other Agility courses. Instead of running laps around obstacle courses, the Brimhaven Agility Arena sets players the objective to tag Ticket Dispensers for agility arena tickets. The Brimhaven Agility Arena consists of 25 pillars, with adjacent pillars being connected via Agility obstacles. 24 of these pillars contain a ticket dispenser. Every minute, one of these ticket dispensers will be activated, and the player should try to find their way to this activated dispenser by traversing the Agility obstacles as quickly as possible. When first tagging a ticket dispenser, no ticket will be rewarded. For every subsequently tagged ticket dispenser, one ticket will be reward. If not tagging a ticket dispenser in time, the next tagged dispenser will not result in a ticket.
The tickets can be traded in to Pirate Jackie the Fruit for Agility experience or a selection of items.
The best experience per hour rates will be achieved by non-stop completing Agility obstacles during the waiting time for the active ticket dispenser to move, making it possible to achieve experience rates upwards of 67,000 Agility experience per hour at level 99 Agility. At lower Agility levels, expect to get around 50,000-60,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on Agility and concentration levels.
Agility Pyramid[edit | edit source]
The Agility Pyramid is an Agility training area located in the Kharidian Desert available to players with level 30 Agility. On this course, players start at the bottom of a pyramid with the goal of reaching the top, where they are able to collect the pyramid top. Before reaching the top, players will have to successfully traverse each of the five layers of the pyramid. These layers are filled with obstacles however, forcing the player back to the previous layer upon failing to pass them.
Pyramid tops may be handed in to Simon Templeton in exchange for 10,000.
Level 75 Agility or higher will prevent the player from failing any of the obstacles, making it possible to complete a maximum of 26 laps per hour, which will reward a maximum of 44,700 experience per hour.
Dorgesh-Kaan[edit | edit source]
The Dorgesh-Kaan Agility Course is an Agility training area located in Dorgesh-Kaan available to players with level 70 Agility and completion of Death to the Dorgeshuun. The basic premise of the course is to cross obstacles using one of two routes to retrieve an item requested by Turgall. One route will focus on purely training Agility, while the other course will mainly reward Ranged experience.
With an average time of 2:36 minutes per lap, it is possible to get upwards of 63,000 Agility experience per hour from this course. At lower Agility levels, expect to get around 50,000-60,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on concentration levels.
Hallowed Sepulchre[edit | edit source]
The Hallowed Sepulchre is an Agility training area located in Darkmeyer available to players with 52 Agility and completion of Sins of the Father. Once an ancient Saradominist burial ground, the Sepulchre consists of five floors, unlocked at 52, 62, 72, 82, and 92 agility. On each floor, players must actively navigate through obstacles and reach the end before a timer expires. On each floor, the player can choose to loot coffins and receive Hallowed marks, or to continue without looting and achieve higher experience rates.
The sepulchre is a very high intensity training method, but has the potential to reward high rates of experience and gold per hour, especially at high Agility levels. It is also the only way to obtain the Dark Graceful outfit recolour and the Dark acorn.
Other training methods[edit | edit source]
Blast Furnace[edit | edit source]
The multiplayer Blast Furnace minigame has a facility to operate a belt to transport ores into the furnace. This rewards 1 Agility experience per game tick, for a maximum of 6,000 experience per hour. This task, however, quickly drains your run energy, so it may be difficult to reach those experience rates.
Gnome Ball[edit | edit source]
Gnome Ball is a small members only minigame in which one or more players aim to score goals against gnomes. This is done by throwing the gnome ball into the goal. Ranged experience is gained each time the ball is thrown, while both Ranged and Agility experience are rewarded when a goal is scored. When you enter the field, you should talk to the referee to get the rules, and how to play.
Toy mouse[edit | edit source]
A toy mouse can be made on a Crafting table in a player-owned house, or rarely attracted while wearing an Ava's accumulator. Winding, releasing and catching it will reward 3 Agility experience each time.
Underwater Agility and Thieving[edit | edit source]
In this activity, players swim around looking for opened treasure chests and giant clam shells. Searching these chests and clams will reward the player with mermaid's tears and glistening tears, which can be exchanged for several items and Agility and/or Thieving experience respectively.
The experience rates scale exponentially with the player's Agility and Thieving levels; therefore, it is not recommended to do this method at lower levels. At level 99 in both skills, the estimated experience per hour is 38,800 Agility and 142,300 Thieving experience per hour.
Werewolf Skullball[edit | edit source]
To play, talk to the Skullball boss at the start of the course. From there, the challenge is to kick the ball through a course of 10 obstacles and score a goal. To kick the ball, right click on it and select how far to kick it. A tap advances the ball 1 space, a kick is 5 spaces, and shoot is 10 spaces. There is also an option of having the map highlighting the goal.
When successfully completing the course, an experience reward will be received, based on the completion time of the course. If it's under 4 minutes, a maximum of 750 experience will be rewarded. Any more and the experience becomes less.
Wintertodt Pillars[edit | edit source]
From level 60 Agility onwards, it is possible to train Agility by repeatedly using the gap-jump shortcut in the Wintertodt's prison. Each jump gives 18 experience, making it a good way to get a bit of Agility experience while waiting for the Wintertodt to spawn. If focusing solely on training Agility here, the player can expect experience rates of up to 21,000 Agility experience per hour. Keep in mind that the Wintertodt is a dangerous boss, so it is recommended to bring multiple pieces of warm clothing and sufficient food.

Run energy restoration[edit | edit source]
The amount of restored run energy per minute depends on the player's Agility level. The rate of run energy restoration can be boosted by partial bonuses provided by individual graceful items, including as much as 30% if the complete graceful outfit is unlocked and worn. Contrary to popular belief, a player's Agility level does not affect how quickly the player's run energy is depleted, which is instead affected by the player's weight, the effects of stamina potions, and the passive effect of ring of endurance.
The table below presents the time it takes to restore 1% of run energy.
Players will gain E amount of run energy per second where A is the player's agility level.
|Level||Seconds per 1% Energy||Minutes from 0% to 100% Energy||Ticks per 1% Energy|
