The Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) is a member-based organization of more than 400 of the world’s leading distance races from over 100 countries.
The objectives of AIMS are:
- To foster and promote distance running throughout the world
- To work with the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) on all matters relating to international road races
- To exchange information, knowledge and expertise among members of the association.
AIMS works together with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to ensure that its road races are measured accurately. All AIMS races must be measured by an accredited AIMS/IAAF course measurer. All races which have obtained IAAF Road Race Label Events have been subject to AIMS/IAAF course measurement standards.
