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!
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!
Here's to the places | Here's to the people | Here's to the #POWEROFRUNNING
The Ultimate Distance! In the Ultimate Location. Distance running is coming home, and you are the one who gets to inspire the world through your running. This is more than just a race, just wait until you are running along the banks of Lake Malawi, enjoying the Warm Heart of the most beautiful continent on earth.
This half marathon will be the most wonderful experience for any runner. Set in challenging terrain, it’s a sandy, dusty trail race that has enough elevation to keep your legs happy but enough stunning vistas to keep your mind rewarded! Forget about your Personal Best and enjoy every single step of this unique course
Our most accessible race but no less rewarding and beautiful. This will be the most popular race with our Malawian runners and many people’s first ever race. Feed off the excitement and the enthusiasm. You’ll hit the banks of Lake Malawi, as well as the villages we’ve been working in. A 10km race like no other!
The perfect way to catch the Impact bug: You'll have a great pitch spot to put up your own tent and access to wonderfully basic wash/toilet facilities. You’ll likely be dotted about the Athletes' Village with Lake Malawi below you. We all eat together, we all work together through the day and become one amazing team ready to change the world.
The best of both worlds - you'll be camping under the African skies. But you'll have mattress & bedding provided and you'll be sharing with 3 other Impact Runners (soon to be your best friends!)
It's time to bunk up! You'll be sharing a dormitory with 3 others, with a shared bathroom housed inside our Athletes' Lodge.
Twin room with ensuite - inside, simple, private....perfect.
We’ll be meeting you at Lilongwe airport to bring you over to our Athletes' Village, around 3 hours drive away. You'll arrive shortly after sunset and have time to settle in, grab a 'Green' and get ready for our Opening Ceremony that will introduce you to all things Impact Marathon...and Malawi!
