947 Ride Joburg

Wycliffe South Africa has been involved with 947 Ride Joburg for the past 11 years.

We have had some amazing times together as the Wycliffe Team, made up of cyclists, supporters, sponsors, and intercessors. We have also been able to raise invaluable awareness and support, both prayerful and financial, for many language groups across southern Africa starting Bible Translation!

We couldn't have done it without you.


Unfortunately, due to several contributing factors, we are no longer going to be entering a charity team into the event... We will, however, remain involved!


This year, from the Wycliffe SA office, we have Helen riding the short ride and Mpho riding the 94.7 km ride. We would love you to join us if you are able to, and to send us photos and any funds you are able to raise in support of the important work of Bible Translation. Please let us know if you are taking part so that we can encourage and pray for you as you prepare and ride. 

If you are entering any other races, or would like to host an event, please also let us know so that we can support you. More information can be found on our website at

Run For The Bibleless

Going forward, we are partnering with BTL Kenya (Bible Translation & Literacy) for the next 10 years to host an event called “Run for the Bibleless.”

There will be a family event in Joburg each year, with entertainment and food, where people can come together to run, walk, pray, and spend time together on behalf of bibleless peoples. In the future, we also hope to host events within language groups doing Bible Translation across Africa.


We are still in the early stages of planning, but can confirm that the 2023 date will be:

Saturday 4th March

Get the date into your diaries! More information will be shared early next year.
