IGlobal Race Around the World 


We are so happy that you are joining our race around the world! IGlobal is dedicated to bringing our global communities together to work toward our shared sustainable development goals. The IGlobal Race Around the World would like to highlight two of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals: 

Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. 

Goal 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development. 

To achieve the Global Goals, we must work together. The idea of partnerships is what inspired our race around the world. Our team calculated the distance from all of our participating IGlobal locations around the world, starting in Illinois and ending in India. The total distance from country to country is 49,136 kilometers. If you would like to view our Google Earth map, please click here.

The mission: we will work together to race the distance of our global IGlobal community. We are working toward achieving this goal while promoting Goal 3 of encouraging healthy lives for our IGlobal family. 

Each of you is invited to submit the distance you walk or run using our Google Form

The distance you achieve will be added to our total kilometers “traveled.” Please take a look at our map and follow along as you work together as “partners” to travel 49,136 kilometers around our IGlobal world! Thank you for joining us!
