Race the Train

Join Mad Bull Events and the East Lancashire Railway as we run the race of the century this 11 June. Runners will start at Bury Bolton Street Station and, at the sound of the train whistle, set off northward sticking as closely to the ELR line as possible in an attempt to reach the finish at Rawtenstall before the locomotive.

So wether you fancy putting your own running skills to the test, or simply want to come along and cheer the brave contenders, it's sure to be a spectacular event.
