Race the World 2022

Race the World LogoSince 2020, British Army soldiers from across the world have taken part in our annual Race the World – The Seven Continents Virtual Challenge raising over £35,000 for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. Units have raced each other across the seven continents – cycling, tabbing, rowing, swimming and running – clocking up to an incredible 35,000km per unit each year whilst raising vital funds to help us support soldiers, veterans ands their immediate families in genuine need.

Race the World will return in Autumn 2022, and it’s sure to create some stiff competition!

Battling to cover the distance of the continents, teams are expected to blaze a trail around the world to beat the competition, in addition to raising money for our charity.

The Competition

Race the World is open to any Army unit, Regular and Reserve, Major and Minor. Units can choose which continents they complete within the race schedule, up to and including all seven continents. Prizes will be awarded for the first place in each individual continent, in addition to prizes for Gold, Silver and Bronze for those who complete all seven.

Fundraising efforts will be rewarded by distance bonuses during some stages of the race. Strava will be used to collect results via an online platform.

Families are strongly encouraged to support Race the World, either by contributing to the distances achieved, or by assisting with fundraising through linked social events, such as a themed party at the end of each continent.

You can take part in Race the World from any location. We are used to supporting our fundraisers wherever they are deployed worldwide. Leader boards will be published regularly on the website alongside updates on social media. Entries can also count towards your unit’s fundraising in the Carrington Drum competition.

Race the World Registration

Race the Word registration will open on 15th June 2022.

Whilst Race the World officially starts on 14th September 2022, units may still register and join to compete in any remaining whole legs, and we will try to accommodate entry wherever possible. Please click on the registration tab to get in on the action!
