Unite and run to tackle the Global Goals
Impact Marathon Series is a social business designed to harness the power of running marathons to link it with sustainably building communities and bringing people together, leaving a lasting impact on the world.
In today's world it is easy to be overwhelmed by the issues we face and it's even harder to envisage the solutions. As an Impact Marathon pioneer, we firmly believe that each one of us can make a difference.
Our goal is to be a catalyst for you to realise your potential to make a difference to others in the world, whilst having the time of your life. To make this happen, we have created an experience that goes so much further than just running a race.
Running Together. With others, for others
In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030. According to the UN, the Global Goals will only be completed if they can be made.
Our aim is to highight these goals by choosing three for each Impact Marathon Series race. These goals link in with local charities and communities in each race country. We have carefully selected the charities, projects and communities and we firmly believe that our runners and their fundraising will have a lasting impact. You can find out more about the individual race goals and projects on the Race pages.
How does it work?
1. We work with the communities to select the Global Goal most pertinent to the challenges they are facing
2. We select the best grassroots organisations tackling this Global Goal.
3. You select your Fundraising Target (we love everyone to shoot for over £1000!)
4. You visit the projects that the money goes to
5. You see, feel and understand your impact
