Presenting the Inaugural Great EpisGOpal Race!

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 with an amazing original design by Chris Corbin.

We are pleased to announce our race ambassadors: Anna Fitch Courie (Facebook: Anna Fitch Courie – Author, Instagram 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 our race sponsor, The Episcopal Diocese of South Dakota, without whom this race wouldn’t be possible (and because of whom we all get to sign up for a race in Sioux Falls).

With a whole week to complete the event, we ask that you please adhere to all CDC recommended social distancing guidelinesmaintain a safe distance from others, and avoid trails and walking paths during peak times.
