Event Overview

In 2020 why not celebrate diversity and equality by supporting LGBTQIA+ rights, challenging yourself to complete a running, cycling, or walking activity in a team anywhere in the world, anytime between 1 to 5 July 23:59 CEST.

As part of our association’s commitment to diversity this year, AIJA invites all runners, cyclists, or power walkers, to show their support and pride by participating in a world tour challenge to celebrate our 58th anniversary on 1 July.
