Race Across the World


Sorry, applications for Race Across the World closed on 4 February 2022.

Thank you all for your interest.

For many, the desire to travel the world has never been greater. The urge to rebuild relationships and reconnect with loved ones has never felt more important and the longing to escape and learn have never been more present. 

BBC Two’s Race Across the World sees its contributors take on the challenge of travelling thousands of miles, at ground level, across land and sea. Those chosen will experience life as a local in some of the world’s most beautiful and remote locations, but on a limited budget and without the luxuries of flights, credit cards and modern technology.

We are on the hunt for dynamic duos, looking for a big adventure. Maybe the restrictions of the pandemic have sparked your wanderlust? Do you feel the need to re-evaluate an important relationship or share this journey with someone special? 

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 Associates
