Event Theme Song Race Along by Aly Aleigha
"I press on toward the goal to win the heavenly prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Faster than the Pastor, A Journey to the Cross is a fresh and relevant community building, evangelization effort and health advocacy initiative, created to bring our faith community together in a way that celebrates and exalts our faith and proclaims the Gospel.
Beautiful and God breathed. Our FTTP events look and feel like typical 5K races. We are different. Our events are NOT USATF certified. Our sanctioning agent is bigger. Is God! All event distances are based on a guiding scripture. Philippians 3:14 = 3.14 mile journey.
What have our participants said? "Coolest event ever....Truly you have put our faith in action....Thank you for producing an event that speaks to our soul....everything expected in a big race with an incredible bonus - a CHRIST centered event!"

Faster than the Pastor - Twin Cities, Are you Quicker than their Vicar? Can you Breeze by the Bishop, Catch a Cardinal, or if he were here, Pass the Pope? Walk, Jog, Run & Pray! Events are family friendly - but let us be clear, there ARE SOME FAST PASTORS out there!
This event is PERFECT for the seasoned runner, casual jogger & slowest of walkers!
