Statement issued by Paco Borao, President of AIMS (The Association of International Marathons and Distance Races)

President’s statement on fires in Greece

“On behalf of everyone in the AIMS running family I want to say that our thoughts are with our many dear friends in Greece, the home of AIMS HQ and the marathon at this hard time when the country has seen many deaths and devastation from fires caused by the extreme weather conditions.

This is today the latest catastrophic natural disaster of a year particularly hard for many of our friends around the world: in Japan facing tragic circumstances from flooding & heat, in Canada with extreme heat, in the US with fires and volcanic eruption, hurricanes in the Caribbean, earthquakes in Mexico and fires in areas of the United Kingdom.

Our thoughts are with our friends, their families and all the people of these and other countries around the world facing the challenges of this time.

Stay strong and know that you are not alone in this time of great challenge and tragedy.”
