Where and when
Isle of Mull, Isle of Mull, United Kingdom
This route has a bit of everything! There will be trails, fells, mud, roads, lochs - the lot. With an out and back design, Impact Marathon wanted to show you some of the most spectacular spots on Mull, whilst telling the story of the project this race is supporting. Starting and finishing on the Glenaros Estate, you'll head out across the estate to Loch Ba and beyond. With 1200m ascent, the majority of which comes in a magical climb at the far end of the route- expect a super fun, fast return to the finish line!
Rolling out across Glenaros Estate and winding its way to Loch Ba, this route is a beautiful trail, with a small bit of road, which has a bit of everything. All the routes on Mull will be out and backs - every route they create focuses on the energy of other runners and you'll have plenty of chances to share the love as you go.
The route is undulating all the way with 300m Ascent to test you, whilst not interrupting your running rhythm. For the experienced trail runner, to those learning the ropes - choosing this distance guarantees and challenging and spectacular day out.
Created to show off the magic of the work being done in Glenaros, this route takes in the estate - from the iron age fort to the new forests that have been created, to the land that will one day be restored to majestic woodland.
If you're new to trail running, or you want to put all your energy into the project work, this route will cap off the weekend and, thanks to Impact Marathon's unique starting system, you'll be running beside the 21k and 42k runners - all helping each other reach that finish line together.
After an incredible 6 years, tackling The Global Goals around the world, Impact Marathon are coming home and will rise to their greatest challenge of all: Climate Change. To achieve this, they have partnered with the awesome Trees Not Tees team to bring their groundbreaking reforestation vision into reality. There are 1 million trees to plant, intertwined with testing technologies, and creating a blueprint for all land managers in the UK. This is powerful, innovative and game-changing work - and they need you. Their pop-up Athletes' Village on the Isle of Mull will be your home for 3 nights as they bring all that makes an Impact Marathon the most impactful race series in the world to the UK. This is set to be a trail race like no other: running together with others, for others, and for our planet.
