Race the Train

Race the TrainRace the Train – August 15, 2015

Race the Train in an absolute institution; held annually in Tywyn, Mid Wales the event takes place alongside (as far as practicable) the route taken by the Talyllyn Railway on its journey to Abergynolwyn and back – 14miles of tough, undulating trail, that has to be completed faster than the train, which is approximately 1hour and 47minutes. Trust is, it’s tough…

There are plenty of festivities and family activities based around the main event and the whole town comes out to celebrate (but don’t expect much in the way of crowd support out on those hills.) Family and friends can ride the train and watch your pain – it’s all part of the fun…

The main Race the Train event is £26.00 affiliated or £28.00 unaffiliated to enter and other challenges including a 10k ‘Quarry Challenge’ are also available. Full details at racethetrain.com
