Last year 90 runners flew to Nepal from all over the globe with one shared goal - to run the inaugural Nepal Impact Marathon. Staying in probably one of the best positioned Athletes' Village in the world, set in the shadows of the Himalaya, our runners made a difference - to their own lives, to their fellow runners' lives and to the projects and communities we support in Nepal.
You'll spend seven days in Nepal, visiting the projects you've fundraised for, getting fully involved in a community project, relaxing in the Athletes' Village in Kakani and running either a 42km, 21km or 10km race that will stretch you to your limits.
We've joined forces with the UN Global Goals to channel funds into projects that support Quality Education, Gender Equality and Clean Water and Sanitation. You'll raise funds for the goal of your choice and the fundraising will be distributed between each of those goal's charities. This year we aim to raise 200,000.
There are three race routes to choose from - 42km, 21km and 10km. So it really doesn't matter if you're one of those people seen daily pounding the streets around your home or whether this will be the first race you've ever run. We're runnning together. That's the main thing.

Nepal Impact Marathon routes
This is an extremely challenging 2-lap course, climbing over 2,000m on the trail of Shivapuri National Park. With a maximum altitude of over 1,800m, this will put all aspects of your endurance to the test, but dig deep and the sense of achievement will make it all worth it.
Half Marathon (21.1km):
The route takes a single lap of Shivapuri National Park, and includes over 1,000m of climbing. This will be one of the toughest half marathons you ever take on, including a climb to the Savage Summit, technical descents, and a euphoric crossing of a waterfall.
Running through the Kakani community, this testing route includes just under 600m of climbing. This is one of the most memorable 10k races you could do. There is an option to hike the course if you can't run it.
