Event Overview

Are you ready to take on an exciting challenge? Run. Bike. Walk. Create an impact with every step. Take up the AIJA 2021 World Tour Challenge to show your support for Human Rights. Complete 59kms, indoor or outdoor, with a team from anywhere in the world between 28 June to 4 July 2021, 23:59 CEST.

Last year, we raised over €5,000 in solidarity with LGBTQIA+ rights and supported the ILGA WORLD. Let’s make it bigger, bolder and better this year by exceeding the 5K mark to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable communities.

As part of AIJA’s 59th birthday celebration, we are committing towards Human Rights and Innovation and raising money for TRIAL International. It is a non-governmental organisation fighting impunity for international crimes and supporting victims in their quest for justice. Learn more about TRIAL International below.

AIJA invites all runners, cyclists, power walkers, AIJA members and anyone interested in being a part of something special to make every step count towards justice.

Here are four simple STEPS to participate:

1. Sign up to join a team in your country.

We have free registration for all participants. Once registered, you will receive a welcome email confirming your place and national team in the following days. 

You will soon be invited to your team’s WhatsApp group to meet other participants and decide on the distance you are completing individually. Team members can independently choose their route, starting time and pace. Each national team is required to complete at least 59km between 28 June to 4 July 2021. 
Register here before 25 June 21

2. Run/bike/walk for a cause.

Wear to represent. Show your support by wearing something representing the cause, e.g., a red cape/long scarf representing the fight for justice, handprints on the shirt expressing support for human rights, write ‘Run for justice’ on your shirt/socks/face. And/or wear something related to AIJA, e.g., red t-shirt, SOS Avocats t-shirt, AIJA written or painted on the skin, AIJA badge, etc.

Use tracking app. Run, bike, or walk using any tracking app such as Strava, RunKeeper, Runtastic, etc. and submit your time along with photographs, selfies and videos capturing moments from your activity in your team’s WhatsApp group and encouraging others to do the same. These will be published on AIJA’s social me

4. Support Human Rights. Support Justice.

We aim to raise funds for TRIAL International.

TRIAL International is a non-governmental organisation fighting impunity for international crimes and supporting victims in their quest for justice. TRIAL International takes an innovative approach to the law, paving the way to justice for survivors of unspeakable sufferings. The organisation provides legal assistance, litigates cases, develops local capacity, and pushes the human rights agenda forward. Know more about the organisation, https://trialinternational.org/
