Dear marathon lover, dear Race Director, dear member of AIMS,

Welcome to the special website of the XXI World Congress of the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races – AIMS!

The main event of our Association will be held on November 10-12, 2016 in Athens, the birthplace of the marathon race, where we expect the highest ever membership attendance on the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the first ever Marathon race held during the first Modern Olympic Games in Athens, in 1896. 

The joint team of AIMS HQ in Athens, the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS), the "Athens Marathon. The Authentic" and our main supporter, the Region of Attica, has put together, in the shortest possible notice, the whole Congress organization and services launched in this AIMS Congress-specific website.

The registrations for the Congress must be completed very soon in order to allow the smoothest possible administration process of our Greek friends, so, AIMS suggests you doing so right away.

Please receive our most friendly welcome to the 21st Word Congress of AIMS. 


Paco Borao

President of AIMS
