Run around the world with us!

Join the Words of Hope Near Far 5K to share the hope of the gospel worldwide. 


Register by June 22 to guarantee shirt delivery before your race!

Register before July 24 to participate and gain access to exclusive content and giveaways. You will still receive your racing swag, but it may arrive after race-day.

We believe that all people, in all places, should have access to God’s Word.


Words of Hope’s mission is to share the good news of the gospel in all ways. This year to help raise awareness, our North American team is running or walking a 5K to support our international ministry team members who are running the race of sharing the gospel. You can help us spread the message of hope near and far by joining us between July 24 – 31. When you register, you will receive a runner’s packet and gain access to our runner’s channels on social media to receive exclusive content, before, during, and after you run your race.

Donate here to show your support for the Words of Hope 5k and the runners around the world working to share the good news!
