Run in the rural, warm heart of Africa

Easily our most immersive and remote experience. Our Impact experience starts and finishes in the small fishing village of Nkope. Nestled on the banks of Lake Malawi, you will find us just a short walk from all the projects. Even our race start line is a 3minute walk from the Athletes’ Village.

You will feel warmly welcomed into this beautiful community and will find a race course steeped in this very same community.

The Race

Dusty, rural, intimate.

Under the hot African sun, we join with hundreds of locals to run through the exact communities we have been supporting all week long.
This is a race course that mixes it up, from dry river beds, to a road section, through 4 separate villages before the iconic Lake Malawi beach (here comes the sand!)…

10km, 21km & 42km distances available.

The Experience

The word ‘intimate’ is never far away from the Malawi Impact experience.

The whole week is a very beautiful way to experience a very beautiul nation, and this commmunity. We live right in the middle of our village. Each morning you will rise to sunrise over Lake Malawi, the sight of the villagers washing their pots and pans in the water and the sound of kids jumping off every rock they can find. Each evening you will huggle around the Sunset Bar and deepen your relationship with your fellow Impact Runners.

The Impact

The Naturally Africa Foundation crosses a number of areas, from education to healthcare, to agriculture. Throughout the week we will introduce you to all these different areas to offer a holistic experience of all the ways that NAF is capacity building within Nkope Bay.

You will be digging, building, teaching, being chased around during KidsRunWild Sports Day. Make no mistake, it is an intense programme that will bring to life all the ways that we, as individuals, can touch the lives of others in a truly positive way.
