Who we are

The Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) created the ‘AIMS Women’s Commission’, a world women’s running movement aiming to improve the participation of women in distance running throughout the world while empowering women through the sport of running.

AIMS has recognised that there is currently no formal global women’s running movement and while participation among women has increased in most parts of the world, the USA in particular, there are still areas of the world where women struggle, for different reasons, to participate in the sport of running. This Commission has been created in support of goal 5 in the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda of Sustainable Development: “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.”
