Register of Doping Offenders

The US company Road Race Management maintains a listing of current and past road running and track and field athletes convicted of dope testing offences at: http://www.dopingsanctions.com/


Russian Federation Suspension

AIMS members should not negotiate the entry or participation of any Russian athletes or support personnel (agents, coaches, etc.) in their races but: “In principle, ordinary fun runners with absolutely no ties to the Russian Federation are eligible to participate.” It is best to explicitly identify the participation of any ‘eligible’ Russian runners in advance of the race being held to avoid any misunderstanding with media outlets.

Those Russian athletes suspended under the IAAF ban are listed on www.dopingsanctions.com
