Message from Paco Borao: There is no doubt that road running has in the last 50 years become one of the most popular sports, with millions of people running in streets, parks and fields, bringing health and happiness to women and men all over the world. Sport is above all based upon fairness and because of this basic principle AIMS wants to pay tribute to those who allow all this to happen; the organisers who devote their lives to bringing both the spectacle for spectators and the course to all of us runners. From deep in our hearts, thank you!
