In this episode, Charlie and Claire welcome Nick Kershaw, founder of Impact Marathons. The conversation includes details about the origin and evolution of their community-driven marathon events. Initially working in finance, Nick sought a meaningful way to contribute to projects in Uganda, leading to the concept of Impact Marathons. These events combine marathon running with impactful community projects, such as building a water pipeline in Nepal or supporting youth leaders in Guatemala. Impact Marathons aim to create sustainable social impact, fostering a deep connection between participants and local communities. The conversation touches on the logistical challenges of organising such unique events, and the profound personal transformations experienced by participants. Nick emphasises the power of running and community engagement to enact positive change and the lasting impact these experiences have on participants and communities alike.
