The Great Commission Race is an annual race in Louisville, Kentucky, hosted by the Bevin Center for Missions Mobilization at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. This race unites the city of Louisville and Southern’s campus to work towards the seminary’s goals in fitness, fellowship, and fundraising for missions.

All proceeds and donations benefit students participating in mission trips with Southern Seminary. Every year the Bevin Center coordinates several national and international mission trips with an emphasis on cross-cultural evangelism, discipleship, and service in accord with the Great Commission.
