The membership totals over320races in over 95 countries & territories covering every continent of the world. A male and female winner are recognised each year for their outstanding athletic achievement and as ambassadors for their sport and country. The award is sponsored by the ASICS sports company and each winner is awarded a golden ASICS shoe. <more>

The AIMS World Fastest Time Award is made to any runner who breaks the world record in the marathon or half marathon. AIMS criteria were adopted by the IAAF to officially recognise World Records on the road from 1 January 2004, as prescribed by IAAF rule 260.28 <read>

These awards started from 1988, the first being made to Belayneh Dinsamo (ETH). At the same time Ingrid Kristiansen's then existing record of 2:21:06, set on 21 April 1985 in the London Marathon, was recognised as the female equivalent time <more>
