The first trailer for “Run the Race,” a film co-produced by Tim Tebow and his brother, Robby, has been released.
“I wanted to be part of something that’s encouraging and inspirational to the viewer. I believe ‘Run the Race’ accomplishes this by showing two brothers struggling with real life, but getting through it by supporting each other and their faith,” Tebow, the former NFL quarterback-turned-Minor League Baseball player said in a statement shared with The Christian Post. “I hope those who see it can walk away with more faith, hope, and love.”
The film will be showing in theaters nationwide on Feb. 22, 2019, through Roadside Attractions.
The Tebow brothers lent their famous last name and talents to tell the fictional story of two brothers in high school who face trying times as they seek different paths to find a way out of their troubled lives.
Following in the footsteps of Christian filmmakers the Kendrick brothers and Erwin brothers, “Run the Race” marks the Tebow brothers’ first shot at creating feature films.
Much like Tim’s story, “Run the Race” aims to show what’s possible when someone “runs to — instead of from — the love of God,” the film’s synopsis says in part.
“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 points Zach toward hope,” the film’s synopsis adds, describing challenges the brothers face.”
