Running with purpose: the Jordan Impact Marathon partners with the Invictus Games Foundation


Every once in a while, partnerships are formed that transcend the standard. They become more than a mere association, turning into powerful symbols of unity, resilience, and shared purpose. The partnership between the Jordan Impact Marathon and the Invictus Games Foundation, through their Invictus Endeavours project, is an awesome example of this synergy.

This November, we will see a team of 10 members of the Invictus Games community joining us in Jordan to take on our 10km, 21km, or 42km run distances, alongside all the Impact Runners already registered to race.

The Jordan Impact Marathon: Beyond the Trail

The Jordan Impact Marathon isn't just another race. Set against the backdrop of the mesmerising landscapes of the Wadi Rum Desert, the marathon has always been about creating meaningful connections and inspiring positive change. The race signifies more than personal achievement; it's a journey of discovery, understanding, and empowerment, both for the runners and the communities touched by the event.

As with all Impact Marathons, before we run, we engage. Engage in incredible projects, engage in the communities in which we stay, and engage with the vision of regenerative travel.

The Invictus Games Foundation: A Testament to the Human Spirit

The Invictus Games Foundation champions the power of sport to inspire recovery and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country. Born from the Invictus Games, a global sporting event for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women, both active duty and veterans, the Foundation's Endeavours project seeks to continue the legacy and spirit of the games, ensuring that the athletes have opportunities to pursue excellence beyond the competitive arena and the biannual games.

Uniting for Change: The Invictus Endeavours Meets Impact Marathon

The partnership between the Jordan Impact Marathon and the Invictus Games Foundation is built on shared values. Both organisations believe in the power of sport as a tool for positive transformation and connection. By uniting forces, they amplify the message of resilience, community, and empowerment.

Runners in the Jordan Impact Marathon will now have the unique opportunity to run alongside members of the Invictus Games community: wounded, injured, and sick soldiers harnessing the power of running on their healing journey. Their journey from recovery to the finish line is a testament to the transformative power of endurance, willpower, and community support.

This collaboration isn't just about the race day. It's about the stories shared, the challenges overcome, and the bonds formed. When all our Impact Runners take the start line in Jordan this November, they create an environment of mutual respect, understanding, and inspiration. Each kilometre run, each sand dune climbed, and each finish line crossed becomes a shared victory. One community.

Looking Ahead: An Inspiring Legacy

The partnership promises to leave a lasting legacy. Beyond the immediate impact of the race, we seeks to inspire others worldwide to challenge themselves, to understand the potential within, and to use sport as a catalyst for positive change.

The Invictus Endeavours project's association with the Jordan Impact Marathon extends beyond the race, highlighting the importance of continual growth, support, and community engagement. It's an embodiment of the belief that our trials and tribulations do not define us; it's our will to overcome and make a difference that truly matters.

As participants lace up their running shoes and prepare to embark on this journey in Jordan, they're not just preparing for a race. They are becoming part of a movement – a movement that believes in the power of unity, resilience, and running with purpose.
