The Race to 2025 is a two-day event that bridges the adrenalin of adventure sport and Jesus’ extreme challenge to His Church—to make disciples of all nations. During the race, your team of four will compete against other teams in physical challenges and simulated missionary life scenarios—including basic linguistics training and a remote “hidden village” encounter.
The race format is inspired by the intense language survey trips that Wycliffe linguists take in beautiful remote regions worldwide. Prior to the race weekend, teams commit to raise a minimum of $2,000 per team ($500 per racer). This money goes to support Bible translation projects around the world. Cool prizes are awarded to those who raise the most money and to the fastest team across the finish line.
Each night, missionaries will engage your hearts and minds with stories of serving God by helping to unlock the fascinating world of language and linguistics.
Sound like fun?
