BBC’s Race Across the World is returning and is looking for dynamic duos to take part!

BBC Race Around the World series returns this March.

As BBC hit global competition series, Race Across the World, returns this month, this time to a new home on BBC One and iPlayer, producers are already planning for the next series and are looking for dynamic duos (aged 18+) from Northern Ireland to take part!

On a limited budget and away from the luxuries of modern technology and conveniences, those selected will experience life in some of the world’s most beautiful and remote locations.

Navigating their way across thousands of miles, they will travel through spectacular scenery and dynamic cities, visit ancient wonders, learn local customs, and take part in time-honored traditions. But the physical journey is only half of the story…

Relying on each another and the kindness of strangers to complete this adventure, perhaps the greatest thing they will discover is what they could learn about themselves and one other. Maybe they’re looking to change something in their life? Or are keen to share the journey with someone special like a family member, work colleague, best friend, or someone they’ve lost touch with. They may even have a very personal reason for wanting to explore a particular part of the world.
