23rd World Congress of AIMS

Any member intending to submit a bid to host the 23rd World Congress of AIMS, to be held sometime between March 2020 and February 2021, should ensure that they have returned the completed forms to the AIMS Secretary (aimssec@aol.com) by 21 August. After this date no further submissions will be accepted.


AIMS Patron Message

The Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) fully supports the ‘Athens Marathon. The Authentic’, recognising not only its unique value but all the symbolisms the Marathon encapsulates as well. Thousands of athletes participate in the Authentic Athens Marathon in Greece, a 365-days-per-year destination, and experience the Greek Light, Greek Gastronomy, and Greek Culture. Those participants are the greatest ambassadors and the most loyal friends of Greece.



Proposed Changes to the Articles of Association

The Board of Directors of AIMS are proposing that some changes to the Articles of Association are made at the Tallinn World Congress. These have been circulated separately to members in the last few days according to the current membership list.
 
If you have not received this information directly then please contact the Secretary at aimssec@aol.com.


IIRM - International Institute of Race Medicine

AIMS’ partners IIRM publish three medical journals per year. These are available to members of AIMS.

The last two journals published are:
Fall/Winter 2017: https://conta.cc/2BcrQ7p
Spring 2018: https://conta.cc/2JqwEa2


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
