Like to run? How about racing in Guatemala, Malawi, Kenya or Nepal?

Last year Charlie Drinkwater (SH 05) ran the Marathon Des Sables and, inspired by the power of running to bring people together, he is now working for Impact Marathon Series. The organisation is all about building communities and leaving a lasting impact on the world, whilst having the time of your life.

The company's mission is to promote the UNs 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. With four incredible races across the globe, runners are able to raise funds and awareness for charities, projects and communities specific to the race country selected ensuring the biggest impact possible.

This year Impact Marathon Series will be running in Guatemala, Malawi, Kenya and Nepal with various distance options available from 10k, half marathon or full marathon, and Charlie would love to see an OU team at one of these races. For more information on the locations available please click here. If you would like to take part or even captain an OU team then please get in touch with Charlie,
