How to apply for Race Across the World 2021 - series 3 application deadline is around the corner!

After a successful first series in 2019, BBC have brought Race Across the World back to our screens on Sunday, March 8th 2020.

Ten more contestants are competing for a £20k cash prize by racing across the Americas.

The twist is they can only use land-based modes of transport, no phones and just enough money for them to get by. Although many might hope to achieve this challenge, only a certain few can really make it through the monumental task.

But are they taking on applications for a third season? Find out how to apply for Race Across the World here.
