Dear AIMS members,

Dear colleagues,

Dear friends in the Marathon world,

Thanks to AIMS and the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS), the best of the best of our community are recognized and awarded every year in Athens, the birthplace of our beloved sport, Marathon.

Either you were in Athens during the 2nd long weekend of November 2019 or you missed the largest annual gathering of international marathon race directors, we suggest that you take a look at the summary post-event video of the 2019 AIMS Best Marathon Runners Awards Gala.

The AIMS BMR Awards recognize the best marathon elite runners of the year (period between October 1st to September 30th), the international marathon events/races that make the difference in social and “green” aspect for our Movement, as well as some very special personalities/figureheads/champions who have contributed to the greatness of the marathon world.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Athens next year, 5-8 November 2020, for the 8th AIMS BMR Awards Gala, the 14th AIMS Marathon Symposium, the Marathon Flame Ceremonies and the 38th “Athens Marathon. The Authentic”.

Let me also take advantage of just entering the last month of the year in order to wish you enjoy a very Happy Holidays season and the best ever upcoming New Year.

Makis Asimakopoulos, Ph.D.

General Manager of “Athens Marathon. The Authentic”

General Coordinator of AIMS Special Events in Athens
