The long-awaited 23rd World Congress of AIMS is now open for registrations at the following location:


The Congress, to be held in Osaka from 23–25 February 2023, will be the first since the lengthy Covid period during which travel restrictions made such a meeting impractical. The Congress is followed by the Osaka Marathon on 26 February which as of the 2022 edition will be integrated with the Lake Biwa Mainichi Marathon, the oldest marathon race in Japan.

The website carries details of the Congress programme with its theme of “Designing the Running Future”. Under this heading the subjects to be addressed in each presentation and discussion are outlined. Many of them consider the effects of the Covid pandemic and the lessons to be learned for the future. It is a subject on which members seem keen to compare experiences.

Check the website: aimsworldcongress and make your booking.
