The faith-based film squeaks into the Top-10 on its opening weekend.
According to preliminary numbers, Run the Race brought in $2.16 million from Friday through Sunday. That puts it at number 10 overall on Box Office Mojo's list of top performers and within the $2 million to $3 million range that experts were predicting.
This Chris Dowling-directed picture stars Evan Hofer and Tanner Stine as teenage brothers relying on each other and their athletic abilities to pull themselves out of difficult life circumstances. Rounding out a strong cast are Hollywood veterans Frances Fisher, Kristoffer Polaha, Mario Van Peebles and Mykelti Williamson.
