Race Across the World

BBC Two

Race Across the World

The question is, if you were stripped of all modern technology and given a very limited budget, would you have the skills to take on the challenge of a lifetime and navigate your way across the world without stepping on a plane?

We are now accepting applications for the next series of Race Across the World, and this incredible experience is open to all, whether you’re an expert adventurer or total novice. With a cash prize at stake, we want to know what lengths you would go to to reach the next checkpoint in first place.

Maybe you’re looking to change something in your life? Or are keen to share the journey with someone special like a family member, work colleague, best friend or someone you’ve lost touch with. You may even have a very personal reason for wanting to explore a particular part of the world.

They say that travel broadens the mind and you never return home the same. So, whatever your reason for signing up, apply today and your next big adventure could be starting sooner than you think!

Race Across the World is produced for the BBC by Studio Lambert
