Presenting the Inaugural Great EpisGOpal Race!

June 17, 2020

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 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.

UTO is pleased to announce the Great EpisGOpal Virtual Race ambassadors: Anna Fitch Courie (Facebook: Anna Fitch Courie – Author; Instagram: @christwalk1 and Twitter: @christwalk1) and David Peters (Facebook: David W. Peters; Instagram: @david_w_peters; TikTok: @davidwpeters). Follow Anna and David on social media to follow along with their race journeys. UTO is also extremely grateful to race sponsor The Episcopal Diocese of South Dakota.
