The Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run PACER test is a maximal aerobic fitness test where the participants run 15 or 20 meter shuttles at increasing speeds. The time between recorded beeps decrease and the subjects continue until they are unable to keep pace with the beeps.

The PACER is designed to measure aerobic capacity, which is characterized by endurance, performance, and fitness. The objective of the PACER is to run as long as possible while keeping a specified pace. Students run back and forth across a 20-meter space at a pace that gets faster each minute.
