About this trip

Choose Malawi and you'll be joining us on the run of a lifetime in our most intimate travel experience. 


Not only will you spend the week living in our Athletes' Village on the shores of Lake Malawi, you'll also be getting stuck right into the work of Naturally Africa Foundation, within the small communities around Nkope. This is a very rural experience, unlike anything else in the Impact Marathon Series.


For the first few days you'll get stuck into a variety of projects, then after resting up on day 5, you'll join locals for our iconic Malawi Impact Marathon!

The Impact

See feel and understand your impact - who we support in Malawi.

As part of our commitment to the United Nations Global Goals, over the past three years we've been supporting Naturally Africa Foundation, which works across No Poverty, Zero Hunger & Health&Wellbeing.  


We take The Global Goals from being sometimes abstract concepts to being real, tangible and understandable on a micro-level.


The Impact Marathon dream is to elevate running to be a major contributor to achieving the UN GLOBAL GOALS!

Reviews

An absolutely incredible week, and a totally unique experience. I’d echo the other reviews – Impact week’s are not your typical tourist trip: we got hands on helping rebuild a mountain road, had our eye’s opened with some challenging but inspiring charity visits, stayed in a fantastic location with some of the most stunning views, and best of all shared it all with some amazing people. I’d highly recommend Impact trips for anyone travelling solo, they’re a great way to meet a real mix of people from all over the world who are brought so closely together by the experiences over the week.
An amazing community of runners and such a memorable week with unforgettable camping views, charity work, and stunning trail runs.
What a trip!!! It covered every emotion. The team at Impact we’re fantastic, looked after us. Ensured we had time to sight see. They arranged a guide to take us around Kathmandu, showing us everything from Monkey Temple to the Palace of the late King.. Not forgetting why I was there we visited some of the projects that Impact are helping which was very eye opening. Nearly had me in tears! Made me what to help even more!! The people that were on this trip were from all over the world and made a fantastic collective group, I laughed every day until tears were rolling down my cheers!! The Impact team, as well as the locals, looked after us so well. Many of us took a while to get back to normal life on return to the day job!! The local food, although basic, was lovely. Very taste, filling and plentiful. (Needed to be after the work we did, helping to clear the storm ditches!! lol ) I cant wait until I can arrange to go on another Impact trip, work permitting!!
The name rings true- this trip was incredibly IMPACTful. Tent accommodations were fantastic (surprised to have an actual bed). Access to hot showers was totally unexpected. Never went hungry- the food was delicious. The people, the conversations and the camaraderie were the highlight. Highly recommend!! Team Impact puts on an excellent week!!
Love the concept and mission of this enthusiast group of organizers. This trip is not your traditional site seeing tourist event- it is a nitty gritty, get your hands dirty, and open your eyes to the needs of others kind of trip. Accommodations are basic but comfortable, food tasty and ample, and the overall experience was highly impactful,
