Impact Marathon is no ordinary race. It’s a chance to experience a country in a totally unique way, with fellow runners from all across the globe. You’ll spend a week living in one of our communities, each day learning something new about the country and its culture. You’ll make memories and friends for life. And somewhere along the way, you’ll run a marathon too.
Whether you choose to run the 10km, 21km or 42km distance, we guarantee an experience like no other. Running alongside hundreds of local runners, we have designed incredible courses that tell the story of a nation - a nation you’ve just spent a week helping. This is much more a victory lap than a race. And believe us, we celebrate that victory together when you cross the finish line.
We work with extraordinary organisations whose primary focus is tackling the biggest issues in each country. During your week with us, you will be engaging in projects led and created by the community, with each one specifically chosen to help take that country one step closer to achieving its Global Goals.
What makes Impact Marathon different, is that you have the opportunity to visit and work within the projects and communities you fundraise for, seeing firsthand the difference your contribution has made and will continue to make to the lives of others. You will return home with such a sense of accomplishment and empowerment, already looking for ways to do more.
Running together. With others, for others
