Guatemala Impact Marathon 

antigua-Guatemala Impact Marathon
February 27, 2024
Antigua, Guatemala
March 3, 2024
Antigua, Guatemala

An extraordinary experience with a blend of stunning locations, hugely impactful volunteering and the hardest race of your life. A volcanic backdrop, some massive social issues to support and meeting new friends for life.

This is not just a race, it’s a week-long community engagement and world-changing adventure. This is your chance to link in with the exciting Guatemalan culture and create a platform for change. We are here to embrace the nation, to learn its history and to help develop the discussions and the opportunities to build a strong future for the country.

The Athletes’ Village will be your home for the week and it’s an absolute beauty. Nestled up in the hills surrounding the UNESCO World Heritage town Antigua, you will be treated to views of not one but THREE beautiful volcanoes… including one that you might see spurting out lava in the evenings.
You’ll rise each morning to yoga within the on-site avocado farm. You can also head out on one of our training runs.
In the evening, the campfire will serve as a melting pot of stories and connections.

Depending on your selected UN Global Goal you’ll be working with organizations in the region to bring about change in their communities.

An incredible, seriously challenge route on an active volcano.
The race will take place on the 5th day. A tough, beautiful trail running route that will test you and inspire you in equal measure and will take you on a volcanic journey of exploration. Not much is revealed about what to expect on race day, but you can be assured that it’s not the ‘average’ race.
The 10km, 21km & 42km routes all run across the moon-like lava fields around Pacaya Volcano.
The 42km even climbs up the slopes until you see the crater and feel it rumbling away below your feet…

Places are strictly limited to 85 people, because the Impact Marathon experience focuses on having enough people to make an impact, but not so many to lose the close, intimate experience.
