NASHVILLE, TENN. – Feb. 25, 2019 – The inspiring new film RUN THE RACE from first-time Executive Producers Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and Robby Tebow opened in theaters nationwide this weekend posting a $2.27 million box office on only 853 screens, and landing at No. 10 among top grossing premiere movies.
“RUN THE RACE is an emotional and heartfelt story about a family overcoming adversity, which resonated with moviegoers this weekend, especially in the heartland,” said Roadside Attractions’ co-Presidents Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff.
“The film stood out as a great live-action alternative for families to see together. Executive Producer Tim Tebow’s enthusiastic and continued support combined with the great cast and filmmaker work helped give this film a special and deserving profile that we hope audiences continue to discover, embrace and recommend to their friends and family,” continued Cohen and d'Arbeloff.
Zach and David Truett live in peaks and valleys. Cheering crowds muted by a lonely home. Coming to theaters Feb. 22, RUN THE RACE tells the story of two desperate brothers willing to sacrifice today for a better tomorrow.
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.
Zach’s knee injury has one silver lining: a chance to grow close to Ginger, a nurse at the hospital. Just as things get serious, Zach’s doubts about God threaten to tear them apart and so he does what comes natural … run.
RUN THE RACE shows what’s possible when you run to—instead of from—the overwhelming love of God.
