‘Run the Race’ sets Blu-ray, DVD, Digital release dates

Executive produced by all-star athlete and best-selling author Tim Tebow alongside his brother Robby Tebow, the inspiring hit film RUN THE RACE debuts on Blu-ray™ and DVD at Walmart as well as on Digital, On Demand and via the digital movie app Movies Anywhere on May 21, 2019 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, in partnership with The WTA Group, Reserve Entertainment and 10th Leper Productions. A faith film everyone will enjoy, the family drama tells the exciting journey of two high school athletes and brothers who see their relationship tested as they seek different paths out of their troubled lives. The Tebow brothers’ feature film debut, RUN THE RACE was one of the top 10 grossing films during opening weekend. Additionally, the film will be available on Blu-ray™ and DVD at all retailers nationwide on June 18.

A story about two brothers willing to sacrifice today for a better tomorrow, RUN THE RACE features an outstanding cast including Tanner Stine (“NCIS,” Indivisible), Kristoffer Polaha (“Condor,” “Get Shorty”), Evan Hofer (“Kickin’ It”), Kelsey Reinhardt (“Transparent”), Mario Van Peebles (“Superstition,” “Bloodline”) with Mykelti Williamson (“Fences,” “Forrest Gump”) and Frances Fisher (“Titanic,” “Unforgiven”).

Reeling from his mother’s death and his father’s abandonment, Zach, an All-State athlete, finds glory on the football field, working to earn a college scholarship and the brothers’ ticket out of town. When a devastating injury puts Zach—and his dreams—on the sidelines, David laces up his track cleats to salvage their future and point Zach toward hope.

Showing what’s possible when you run to—instead of from—the overwhelming love of God, RUN THE RACE on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital features exclusive bonus content that takes fans even deeper into uplifting narrative and the film’s themes of forgiveness, family and unconditional love.
