DHM Route Measurement for AIMS certification
Dhaka Run Lords has been working hard to deliver a world-class running experience for our
running community. We are delighted to share that we have just completed an official route
measurement exercise with an AIMS certified route measurer. Amir Shandiwan flew in from
India recently to measure the running track of the Dhaka Half Marathon (DHM) and the
exercise was completed on 24 January 2020. He will report his findings to AIMS which will
assess the DHM track length for official certification.
An AIMS (Association of International Marathons and Distance Races) route measurement
certification ensures the length of a race track is measured using international standards and
methodologies. AIMS works with the International Association of Athletics Federations
(IAAF), now known as World Athletics, to ensure races are of international standards.
As we wait for the results of the AIMS route measurement application, check out the pictures
from the exciting DHM route measurement exercise. With the support of our beloved running
community we strive to make the Dhaka Half Marathon a world-class, signature running
event of the country. Stay tuned for more updates!
