How do you like to warm up, pre-race!? Only 6 days until @londonmarathon, and 6 days (minus a few hours!) until we take on the IMS Nohtaram. Check out our events page on Facebook and come and join the fun!
Finishing an Impact Marathon forces you to dig deep down inside what you thought was possible. Sometimes, you can do this on your own. Sometimes, it takes another person helping you to find the strength that lies within you. This is the #powerofrunning to unite...

Tuesday at Impact Week is 'See Your Impact Day' - a time for the runners to visit the exact projects the race is supporting. We headed to a Mayan Women's Collective where they taught the runners about their lives, shared their food and showed the work they do to support their families. ⠀ ⠀ When you can see exactly how passionate and driven people change the lives of others, you can deeply understand your abitility to change the lives of others for the better. ⠀ ⠀ #powerofrunning #GuatemalaImpact
Sometimes, it was hard to tell if we were in Guatemala or Canada The guys from @ExportDevCanada brought energy, love and more energy all week long... GO TEAM CANADA! #powerofrunning #GuatemalaImpact
When you arrive in the Athletes' Village ... All this week we are going to be re-living the incredible Impact Week in Guatemala. Each day, we will show two highlight shots of that day and give you just a little visual nugget of joy to inspire your actions and your running this week. Anytime we take on a race country we rely on the pioneers who just find a way to say 'Yes' even though they've never done anything like it before. Here's to the people who change the world... https://buff.ly/2qgexL6 #powerofrunning #guatemalaimpact
We are massively excited to introduce you to our new IMPACT AMBASSADOR - LUCY BARTHOLOMEW. Lucy certainly knows a thing or two about running but most importantly for us she knows that running is at its best when you are with others. Lucy will be joining us and bringing her awesome energy to the group for the Nepal Impact Marathon in November. We asked her how it feels to be starting her Impact journey, “It’s an honour to be a part of the Impact Marathon project. To see a new part of the world, on foot, with the local community and share this passion of mine with new friends is really exciting.” Lucy, the honour is all ours and we cannot wait to see you in Nepal. @lucy_bartholomew
