AIMS is aware that the participation of women in running varies depending on different aspects bearing in mind that in some parts of the world is still low; the participation of women is a topic of high importance for society and we aim to increase this numbers, this is the reason why the AIMS  WOMEN´S COMMISSION decided to create AIMS WOMEN as its main program planning to promote the sport of running among women and encourage them to participate on distance running events and adopt the sport of running as a their healthy life style.
