THE ULTIMATE ENDURANCE EVENT
A Muskathlon is an ultimate endurance event – like a marathon – set in the heart of places around the world suffering extreme injustice. Muskathlons trigger change.
The Muskathlon adventure offers an unforgettable sporting experience whilst giving impactful first hand exposure to the good work of local organisations fighting against injustice. In addition to the event, all participants raise significant funds which are given directly to specific charities so that the impact of this huge injection of funds can be observed whilst on the trip. A Muskathlon is a life-changing experience engaging the mind, body and soul like nothing else. A Muskathlon is unique.

Frequently Asked Questions
What immunisations do I need? We are not medical experts, therefore we strongly advise that you speak to your GP surgery or local travel clinic as they can advise if there is any other specific to yourself, or if the recommendations have changed.
