“The negative period of the pandemic is behind us, we canceled the Congress in Batumi twice and we are grateful to Belgrade for the opportunity to “restart” the activities of our organization. We have scheduled the next Congress in Osaka next year, which, as you know, is a country with high standards in the marathon” , said AIMS president Paco Borao.

The International Relations Director of the Nagoya Women’s Marathon, Saki Mitsuda, said on that occasion: “The Japanese as a nation love to run, but also to watch and cheer for the participants in large numbers. We are proud to host AIMS after 40 years, because the first meeting was held in Tokyo. We are preparing sessions on the topic of post-pandemic recovery. The congress is an opportunity for all of us to come together and create new connections and friendships. The AIMS Congress will be held from 23 – February 25, 2023 year, and the Osaka Marathon a day later, February 26, 2023.”
