Race Information

From fast runners to leisurely walkers, thousands of people will unite around the globe on a mission together to bring clean water to communities in need.

6 kilometers is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water — water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. People from around the globe will walk or run an average distance for an extraordinary cause.

Each participant's registration of $50 goes to World Vision's Water Initiatives. After you register you will receive a World Vision Global 6K for Water t-shirt, race bib, and medal in the mail. Map out a 6km route in your neighborhood or attend a bigger gathering at a host site. Walk or run with your friends and family and post your photos on social media with the hashtag #6KforWater!
