Event day logistics
Day 1 - Arrive in Mull
Food: Dinner Included
Open from mid-afternoon, the Athlete's Village in Mull is a sight to behold. So come along and relax, grab a beer at the Sunset bar, and meet your fellow impact runners at the yoga session to stretch your legs out.
Dinner will be included and will highlight the best local ingredients, followed by introductions to the teams. Tonight, its about socialising and learning about the mission you're about to help.
Day 2 - Impact Day
Food: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included
Fusing learning, understanding, and action, today will include a combination of physical work and learning to bring Future Forests vision to life.
What exactly that entails will be a surprise, but you will definitely get dirty and most likely wet in this Scottish oasis. There'll be food through the day, sunset yoga, a big dinner with plenty of carbs - and the all-important race briefing!
Day 3 - Race Day
Food: Breakfast & Dinner included
Race day doesn't even begin to describe what will happen today. A complete celebration of running and the joy shared when running together, this trail run will ensure you're experiencing something unlike ever before.
Bring your energy, treasure every step and take on an incredible, challenging and stunning trail route. Then, it's time to celebrate.
Dinner will be a proper feast and the Sunset Bar will be open late into the night - it's time to celebrate all that has been achieved.
Day 4 - Homeward Bound
Food: Breakfast included
One final sunrise awaits those achey bones, but there will be a good breakfast waiting to fuel you home.
The Athlete's Village closes officially at 11am, but you're more than welcome to stay in Mull and exploring the island.
There are plenty of places to stay, food to enjoy and wildlife to find.
Impact Marathon's logo
Impact Marathon
The Impact Marathon Series was born from a dream that we could use the simple power of running to uplift communities and empower runners all over the world. Throughout the Impact process, from the organisations we choose to support, to the way we engage and interact with the projects and the communities, our goal is to take the impalpable and make it real. To take our runners on a journey where they can find out what Impact really means - the direct Impact we can create, as well as how our lives indirectly have an impact that creates ripples across the world. To take a runner and make them an Impact Runner. Nick Kershaw, the founder and CEO, says "When a group of positive, energised people come together with a common purpose, not only do we achieve great things but we make great friends. We arrive as individuals, and we finish the week as one tight community."
