Nepal Impact Marathon routes

The deposit cost taken today will secure your spot on the trip. The rest of the payment will be due at a later date.

Marathon (42.2km):

This is an extremely challenging course, climbing over 2,000m on the trail around Batase. 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 Batase Village, 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 thrilling mountain-ridge.


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, including the hardest hill of all the distances. The option to hike the course is also available for those who wish to be a part of the event, but are not runners.

This is where the hard work starts. With a bus ride taking the same amount of time as a hike, you'll spend the day hiking 6/7 hours up to your new home of the rural Sindupalchowk. Passing through the Shivapuri National Park, and the remains of the earthquake-destroyed Chisapani Village, you'll be treated with panoramic views. A lorry will take bags up to the home of Impact Nepal in Batase, and meet you there after a long, but beautiful, day of hiking.

Day 4: Thursday 18th November

Participants will rise with the sun and spend the day finding out more about the various projects in the community. With projects from the new school farm to business plans and more, there is something to suit everyones passions. This day will be a great insight to Nepali rural life.

Day 7: Sunday 21st November

A long but rewarding week comes to and end here, with a bus taking you back to Kathmandu. You're encouraged to book flights for the afternoon, as this journey back is not a quick one, but fear not, transfers to the airport are included in the price.

Kit List

Make sure to pack suitable gear for the week's activities and also bear in mind that the races take place at altitude over challenging terrain, so appropriate sports wear should be prepared.
