Race the Train

Born to run (against a train)!

It’s a climactic conflict between human and machine, are these runners faster than a speeding locomotive? There’s only one way to find out.

Organised by Mad Bull events, this popular race has been run for the past seven years, so if you want to register and test your mettle against a wonder from the Industrial Revolution then don’t delay.

If you don’t fancy running, you should still come along and cheer on your favourite competitors. A special shuttle has been added to ensure you can be there at the finish line waiting for them.

The East Lancashire Railway is not responsible for anything pertaining to the race. Please contact Mad Bull events with any inquiries not relating to the operation of the trains.
