There are lots of airfoils (aerofoils in the UK) all designed for different things.
A lot depends on the materials you intend to use and what you mean by a long distance.
Glider flight has 2 components - the glide slope - how far you can fly with no lift - this is a function of weight and aerodynamic drag.
and lift - the help you get from rising air in thermals or from mountain waves set up in the wind.
