The Measurement of Road Race Courses

Measurement procedures outlined in this booklet are those prescribed by World Athletics/AIMS for the measurement of World Athletics and AIMS races. World Athletics will only recognise times on courses measured by this system for world records, qualifying times for Championships, etc. All races wishing to apply for an World Athletics Road Race Label must have been measured by an approved A or B Measurer.
