If you love running and are desperately seeking new terrains to discover then the International Nepal Marathon may just be something you’d want to sign up for! The first marathon experience organised by Impact Marathon Series will take place on November 26th 2016 this year and as they say this is “not just a marathon, but a marathon with a difference”. With a focus on three out of the seventeen UN Global Goals and a strong belief in creating social change through running in the community, Nepal International Marathon has a strong focus on leaving a lasting impact on the world we live in. The projects which runners will be supporting will be focusing on Gender Equality, Quality Education and Clean Water and Sanitation. Impact Marathon Series is working with projects such as Childreach Nepal, Smart Paani, Maiti Nepal and Clean Water Nepal, BVS Nepal (Burns Violence Survivors), and Cerebral Palsy Nepal to name a few.
The itinerary looks exciting! Whether it’s 10K, half or full marathon, you’ll be staying in an athletes village in the hills of Nuwakot and running in the stunning hillsides of Kakani and Shivapuri, immersing yourself with insightful experiences focused on the different projects on the other days. Booking is already open and you can find a whole lot more information on the website.
