Here's how to apply to take part in BBC Two's hit series Race Across The World.

Race Across The World sees pairs of contestants racing from a start line in one part of the world to the finish thousands of miles away - all without the use of air travel or any of the trappings of modern day life.


Leaving behind their smartphones, internet access and credit cards, they must navigate their way through the varied landscapes of countries at ground level, with only the cash equivalent of the airfare to their final destination.

As series 2 airs Sunday nights on BBC Two, a third season is now inviting applications.

"BBC Two's hit show returns for another series and we are looking for our next set of dynamic duos ready to take on their biggest challenge."

The closing date for applications is midnight 31 May 2020.

In the mean time, series 2 of Race Across The World airs Sunday nights at 8PM on BBC Two.

For 2020, Race Across The World sees the teams going from the top to bottom of Latin America - from Mexico City to the most southerly city in the world, Ushuaia in Argentina. Up for grabs is a cash prize of £20,000.


Alongside the regular BBC Two series, a Celebrity version of Race Across the World has been announced to air on BBC One.

Celebrity Race Across The World will air over six episodes. An air date and line up has yet to be confirmed.
