The VAMEVAL (VAM-Eval) Test is a running test which can be used to calculate the maximal aerobic speed (Cazorla and Leger, 1993). The test involves running around a track, increasing the pace every minute. The maximal aerobic speed (or maximal running speed) is defined as the slowest speed at which you reach VO2max. This speed is used to help set an appropriate running pace in training programs.
