BBC One have revealed a first look at the third season of Race Across The World.

The hit competition show will return with a nine-part series, this time airing on BBC One and iPlayer. and promises to be the “most extreme” journey to date.

In this instalment, five pairs of hopeful travellers will race across Canada, starting at the edge of the Pacific Ocean in Vancouver and racing over 16,000 kilometres across six time zones to finish on the Atlantic Coast of North America’s most easterly city- St John’s Newfoundland.

This year will see best friends Cathie and Tricia, brothers Marc and Michael, husband and wife Zainib and Mobeen and two father and daughter duos Kevin and Claudia and Ladi and Monique compete for prize.

The pairs will not be able to use air travel or any benefits of modern life, including phones or credit cards, as they navigate through the incredible Canadian wilderness. Instead, they must rely only on their own skills, the kindness of strangers and the cash equivalent of a plane journey to their final destination.

First over the finish line will win a cash prize of £20,000.

A release date for season three has not yet been announced, but there have been reports it could be back as early as this month- so keep your eyes peeled!

It has been three years since the previous season of the BAFTA-winning show aired, so it’s safe to say fans are excited for it to return.

In the last instalment, five teams were tasked with travelling across South America starting in Mexico City and ending in Ushuaia in Argentina.

Race Across The World season two is currently available on BBC iPlayer.
