Fancy pitting yourself against a steam train? Race the Train on 19 June gives runners the chance to do just that!
In partnership with East Lancashire Railway, the race starts from Bury Train Station on the sound of the steam train’s whistle. Runners then set off north along trail paths running alongside the railway lines and Irwell River. The run is from point to point, starting at Bury and finishing at Rawtenstall Station.
The steam train travels south to the next station then changes tracks, before heading north to catch the runners as it makes its way to Rawtenstall Station. Your friends and family can ride the train, looking out for you along the way and shouting encouragement. Why not buy a concessionary train ticket for them?
