Run, Cycle or Walk to Help us Raise Money for Bibles

Our 2020 event was incredibly successful, with over 2000 runners, walkers and cyclists taking part in our first ever virtual event! Through contributions, we were able to provide 2000 Bibles to people in need, as well as 2000 literacy books specifically for children. That’s 4000 lives changed through your support.

This year we want to go bigger and better! Our 2021 event continues to support the Bible Society’s goal to distribute 2 million Bibles in celebration of our 200th year. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and current restrictions we have taken the decision to Cancel our live events. This is to ensure all of our participants safety, the severity of the third wave and with the rampant spread of the Delta strain, we don’t feel it responsible to host group events. Your safety is our number one concern. 

The virtual events will continue, all entrants can complete their chosen distance in any area of their choice. We encourage congregations to get together safely within restriction guidelines and to support this event, to enable the Bible Society to spread the Word of God to communities across the world that do not have the means to purchase Bibles.

The virtual event aims to be inclusive for all walks of life and athletic ability, whether you want to do a family 5km walk, or you miss getting those long runs in and want to hit the road for a long one. There is something for everyone, so make it a weekend for the whole family by clicking on your chosen distance below and enter today!

Every entry taken guarantees that we will be able to assist the Bible Society with one Bible for either an individual or church in need, as part of the 2 Million Bibles Project. For more information, please visit http://www.biblesociety.co.za
