Good news this week with AIMS Certification of both the Cork City Marathon and Half-Marathon being confirmed on Friday last, following course re-measurement

AIMS certification is an entry requirement for many big Marathons and Half-Marathons, particularly the famed Boston Marathon, so the re-certication of the Cork courses is a major coup for the event, and ensures that anyone achieving qualifying times, in Cork, for the Marathon Majors, will have 'made the grade'

The courses were last measured in 2017, and AIMS certification lasts 5 years - unless the course(s) change - so full remeasurement of both courses was required this year

Certification by AIMS requires that the course is measured by an AIMS A or B International Grade Measurer. This year, as since 2007, the course was measured by John Quigley, AIMS Grade A Measurer
