Have you registered for The Great EpisGOpal Race yet?
Join us in gratitude, grab your sneakers, and race YOUR way in the Great EpisGOpal Virtual Race to support the 2020 UTO Ingathering. Anytime between July 22 - July 31, choose your preferred mode and distance and race to raise money for COVID-19 relief. You can bike a 10K, run a half marathon, or skate a mile—the options are limitless. All of the funds that you help raise will be collected for the 2020 UTO Ingathering and dispersed to ministries responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you’ve not registered yet, now is the time! We are giving away copies of the book written by our race ambassadors: Christ Walk and Christ Walk Crushed. Two lucky participants who registered by July 15th will win a copy of one of the books, and we’ll do one last drawing for those that register by July 25th. That means, if you register before July 15th, you get four chances to win. We also have autographed copies of the books available for the person who has raised the most money, created the largest team and for best photo and video entries on social media that tag the race.
If you are looking for some friendly competition, start a team with your friends, church, or diocese and see how far you can collectively go. If you want to participate but prefer to keep your sneakers in the closet, you can sign-up and invite others to donate to your page. Registration is just $15 with the option to purchase a race shirt (shown here) with an amazing original design by Chris Corbin.
