EQ Investors (EQ) has today announced that it will be the headline sponsor of the Malawi impact marathon.

Now in its second year, the event takes place in the fishing village of Nkopee, nestled on the banks of Lake Malawi from 20 – 26th May. The event caters for runners of all abilities with a wide variety of distances, including 10k, half-marathon and full marathon.

The Impact Marathon Series sees runners travel to unique locations, engage in community projects during the week, and then enjoy an unforgettable trail running experience. This high-impact combination has raised over $1m for grassroots organisations to date.

Ben Faulkner, Marketing Director at EQ, said: “The decision to put our name to the 2019 Malawi impact marathon was a relatively easy one. It is the perfect fit with our branding strategy, which aims to associate EQ Investors with like-minded companies that believe in making a positive impact on the world around them.”

“We would like to wish all runners the best of luck and hope they smash those PBs!”

Nick Kershaw, Founder & Chief Executive at Impact Marathon Series, added: “It’s great to have EQ on board. As a fellow B-Corp, they share our purpose-driven approach.

“We believe the 2019 Malawi impact marathon will be another milestone event for everyone involved. We cannot wait to get our running shoes on.”
