Nick Kershaw is the energetic leader of the dream and revels in making a vision into a reality - bringing people together through the power of running. In 2015, Nick left his job in finance, placed all his possessions in two bags, and set on his way to create Impact Marathons around the world. He is deeply passionate about almost everything, and he brings his relentless energy to every meeting, every race, every taxi journey...everything. He built Impact Marathon starting from zero, and has had to do the same again as we emerge for the pandemic. He lives, and breathes 'the power of running' but is inspired by every single Impact Runner, every single charity partner, every single team member who give so much to those around them. The Impact Marathon Series was born from a dream that they could use the simple power of running to uplift communities and empower runners all over the world. In 2015, they turned our dream into a reality, taking Impact Marathon to Nepal. Living in a Nepali village, they undertook the challenge of building a 5km water pipeline to the community, before lacing up their shoes and running their own race - it was then that they realised they have the power to change people’s lives forever. ----  Please subscribe to the Sports for Social Impact Podcast wherever you get your podcast! Leave us a review and a 5 star rating to help bring others in the world of sports into the conversation! The Sports for Social Impact podcast was nominated for a Sports Podcast Award and Canadian Podcast Award.
