Description

The United Thank Offering and Episcopal Migration Ministries are teaming up to bring you the 3rd Annual Great EpisGOpal Race! Grab your sneakers and join together in gratitude to race your way October 23. 

Building on 20 years of partnership, UTO and EMM are coming together for the 2022 Great EpisGOpal Race. Through this race, we hope to promote the practice of gratitude for our bodies, environments, communities, and neighbors. The funds raised from this race will support EMM’s Neighbor to Neighbor initiative and the 2022 UTO Ingathering. Neighbor to Neighbor is a program offered by EMM, which was founded through funding from a UTO grant. Neighbor to Neighbor directly trains and provides support to faith communities who serve as community sponsors for their new neighbors.  Anytime between October 14 - October 23, choose your preferred mode and distance and race for good. You can bike a 10K, run a half marathon, or skate a mile—the options are limitless. Let’s race together in gratitude!

How It Works:
  1. Choose your location. This race is virtual, meaning you can compete from anywhere in the world! You can hike a mountain in Switzerland, cycle around your neighborhood, or run a marathon in your house.
  2. Choose your time. The race takes place from October 14 - October 23. Race at a time that works for you.
  3. Choose your mode. We are joining together in gratitude for our bodies. Move in a way that makes you happy – run, bike, swim, hike, paddle board, martial arts, the options are endless.
  4. Choose your distance. Whether you want to set your personal record or take a stroll around your neighborhood, this race is for you. 1 mile, 5k, marathon, or anywhere in between, you choose!
Ways to Participate
  1. Race. Join in gratitude, grab your sneakers, and move your body. We invite you to take this time to celebrate yourself.
  2. Fundraise. You can choose to fundraise for UTO, EMM, or both! 100% of the funds raised for UTO will support the Ingathering. Funds raised for EMM will support their Neighbor to Neighbor program.
  3. Create a team. Invite folks from your parish, diocese, province, or beyond to race with you and start a team on the race page.
  4. Challenge. Think your team can raise the most money or go the furthest distance? Challenge another team and see who wins!

Registration opens on May and costs $15. Race participants will have the option to buy a UTO or EMM suncatcher from Blenko as a race medal for $15. If you raise $100 for UTO or EMM, you will receive a free suncatcher! There will be additional prizes and giveaways throughout the race for participants and fundraisers.
